Our Studio Exhibition looks just fantastic. When I had a store front studio on Highland Street (there are several good restaurants, a popular coffee shop, a pizza place, a wine store and few other stores which have art work on the street in walking distance.) I used to display the gallery space with new items all the time. Since I moved to this new location because the studio was not a store I have not organized any exhibitions for 3 years. (Besides the out side installation in 2010.). So it’s time to show many wonderful pieces in public that my students have been making.
Her latest project is a rug for her brother. She set about 10 ends warp and woven with scrap yarn from our “treasure basket” to make a long narrow strip.
The weft threads were basically thrum, left-overs after trimming fabric edges in the past. Then she set up 60cm wide black warp using 3 dents reed to weave the woven strip collaborating with regular yarn weft. How interesting the rug came out! What a creative idea she got! I am so impressed by her idea and her persistence to realize it. I will miss her very much. Hope she pursue her enthusiasm in art anywhere she goes.
