Back in the studio this week after the winter school holidays. Feeling fired up and continuing the fun by weaving these lovely hot colours.
Lush colour inspired by my local walks, kea feathers, punamu and a million evergreen leaves shinning in the winter sun.
3 herringbone twill scarves; each one with its own particular touch of green goodness.
…..I’ve been working on everything all at once. Some chunky knits for the Little Beehive Co-op shop, some warming hand weaving, and an exciting design collaboration with my studio buddy Nester prints .Here is a little sneak-peep – still a way to go yet.
Sometimes I take on a big project and really challenge myself.
This commission has me slowly but surely weaving four wall panels – juggling many colours, shapes and techniques.
Still learning lots and loving it.
Last week I finished this simple blue and white scarf. Soft, understated and perfect for a relaxed weekend.
Hand woven using a blend of merino, silk, cotton and viscose. Approx 180cm long by 20cm wide NZ$105 free postage anywhere in the world.
New tiny ‘sea escape’ weavings woven this week – using hand dyed silk, cotton and merino.
It has taken me four days to get a design idea to this stage of weaving.
Still not totally sorted, but am loving the problem solving process and giving my brain a workout. The colours and natural yarns are also quite yummy.
This piece is for an upcoming exhibition, but you can have a little peep.
