River of life design on TC2 loom

Summer Jazz on the River

Been feeling jazzy. This appeared on the jaquard loom after I’d been playing with river of life tablet woven bands…it is going to have to calm down a bit, we’ll see where it goes.

It is a lampas weave using 4 wefts, 3 silk pattern wefts on the bright side of life and a more sombre dark blue cotton ground weft.

I am using the stick in a shed method to hold this onto the loom, You can just see the central tie attaching to the loom peeking out. It is holding on miraculously, with the help of a weavers favourite tool, masking tape.
