Creative weavers take risks and don´t always “play safe”.
These photos, taken at Anna Champeney Estudio Textil today, show how using fine singles yarn as warp causes tangles as they are put on the loom.
The experienced weaver knows how to deal with tangles like this without breaking the fine threads – creating order out of chaos.
The work can be very satisfying although to non-weavers it might look like a form of torture!
Here is Figulus, our workshop cat, reading the french magazine “Le Lien Creatif”.
On page 7 you can find a letter published in the section “Courrier des lecteurs” by “M.”.
“M.” (alias Daniel Marchetti) is a French shepherd and business entrepreneur who lives with Gaelle, his artist partner, in the Alpes Marítimos. They came to stay at textilesnaturales in Galicia last year and enjoy some one-to-one tuition with Lluis in the special Catalan basketry techniques.
Here he describes his visit to us – describing Lluis as the “ambassador for catalan basketry) and the village of Cristosende as “an adorable village with vineyards” in Galicia.
Thanks for such a nice write-up Daniel and we hope to see you and Gaelle again,
Anna and Lluis
