Dreamcatcher weavings

Using three chopsticks to create a triangle, I explored weaving, winding & interlacing. I purposely used bright colours, and like how this contrasts with the shadows.
I realised that I had yet to post a picture of the front of my third tapestry sample. This sample uses wire, mohair, ribbon, string, plastic bags, sock yarn, embroidery threads and many other weft materials found around the flat.
Notice how the warp is revealed when using wire as the weft.
Fancy knitting yarns and mohair threads create interesting textures on the surface!

  1. Those are both really beautiful! The colors in the dreamcatcher are so lively. And the weaving is such a great combination of different materials :-)
