June 2012 Project – Jacquard Demo

This is my latest work (still in progress). I’ve called it ‘Spring’. It has been woven as a it as a demo of the ‘jacquard’ technique, and I’m writing an article on that subject which will be published very soon in the Complex Weavers Journal.

In case you are wondering, the term ‘jacquard’ refers to a control mechanism that allows the raising of each thread on the loom independently of the others, bringing versatility and freedom from widthways repeats which are a feature of other types of mechanism.
