An Art Work produced via Double Weave

Karen's double cloth sample

This piece of weaving is what excited me about double weaving. I love the colour scheme and the three dimensional aspect of it. This is a sample piece woven by Karen Richardson – our teacher for the weaving unit that I am undertaking at SouthWest TAFE.

Double weave or double cloth is when two cloths are woven at the same time on the loom.  An OK explanation can be found here.

In our class we are experimenting with Double Weave. It did take a while to get my brain around it. I will post pictures of the results when we three (Rocky, Georgie and myself) have finished.

In the meantime, I am very much looking forward to the coming week. I am doing a five day workshop with India Flint ( here is her blog) which is being organised by the Art Department at SouthWest TAFE. Yeehaa!
