sampling taquete weave for curtains

 

This section of handwoven cotton is a sampling for curtains. This has been a slow moving project, it is great to share some progress.

The design is a mottled sort of stoney background with Pictish imagery woven in. The images blend and fade as they do on the carved stones we see in Aberdeenshire.

There is a celtic knot from the top of the Monymusk reliquary. There are eagles, horses, snakes and beasts.

The warp is a peachy colour, there are two wefts, white and grey, woven in taquete.

    and this is just a little bit – there is at least 4m more. The design is full of enquiry, exciting and beautiful. Can’t wait to see it when finished.

      Thank you! We’ll see how it is when it been wet finished – should look tighter and have more body. The real thing may be less peachy, jury is still out.
