Woven landscape



/ / /

This summer I’ve spent several hours learning new weaving skills: Choosing a picture/painting to develop a tapestry, trying a more realistic style, using different textures to interpret things closer or far, something small or big, something smooth or rough. And this is the result, Is about 65 x 65 cms and (like textiles in general) is hard to photograph because it sucks the light.

The next photographs is the painting I used as reference, and myself with the tapestry mid done. I’ve learned to weave for the back of the tapestry, with a mirrow in front.






Weave to sew


For two weeks the loom has been occupied for this long piece. 9 meters of squares and spontaneous lines, mixing black wool and greenish-pearl linen. Now that is has been washed it’s time for next steps, cut and sew. / Durant dues setmanes el teler ha estat ocupat per aquesta peça tan llarga. 9 metres de quadrats i línies espontànies, barrejant llana en negre i lli verdós-perlat. Ara que ja l’he rentat toca pensar en els següent passos; tallar i cosir.

Good mood / Bon humor

Good weather. This week has been more creative than productive. It’s ok, I’ve been in a good mood. Just need to compensate. I have the loom full of threads than I have not tied (yet) a lot of printed patterns to try (yes printed, sometimes I buy patterns already done. Yes, I’m lazy), some weird drawings, until a poem about woods, mushrooms and beasts… At least life is fun. Happy weekend!

Fa bon temps i aquesta setmana ha estat més creativa que no pas productiva. Està bé, he estat de bon humor. Només em cal compensar-ho. Tinc el teler ple de fils per lligar (encara) uns de patrons impresos per provar ( si impresos, a vegades els compro ja fets. Si, per mandra), alguns dibuixos extranys i fins i tot un poema sobre boscos, bolets i bèsties… Almenys la vida és divertida. Bon cap de setmana!
