This post is an update on one of my projects this semester. I have been documenting the process of preparing yarn for an ikat inspired weaving which will later serve as yardage for a set of cushions and a throw/runner. Here are a few photos showing the first few phases of the work. It’s a been a slow developing piece, approved but so far worth it. Dying yarn for weaving is a serious time investment. I will post more about this project when it is completed.
