In May, the assignment was to bring a paper bag with three random objects. Mystery bags were exchanged, and each weaver was to make something inspired by the three objects. Here are some of the results:
In her bag Jess Jones found a yellow paint brush, a feather, and a handmade tassel. She used those items as inspiration for a stole she sent to a friend as a special wedding present.
|Jessica worked with the color yellow, linen and cotton warp (a bit feather-y), and the tassel? Well, the fringe of course.|
|Two art postcards suggest "multiples of something" in these deep colors and the rick rack suggests red trim!|
|Michaela's first sample looking for a pattern to echo the grey scallops and waves found on the inner walls of a tea box. (Life lesson: Keep your eyes open; inspiration is EVERYWHERE!)|
|The final project kept the grey warp but switched out the weft thread to a bottle green color. Warp and weft are both silk and wool.|
