I love learning new things, especially new ways to create. My curiosity and my love of learning are things I hope I will never loose sight of, no matter how old I get. Last spring I got to try something I've been curious about for a while, jacquard weaving. Even though I struggled with understanding some the technical aspects of this method, it was still a lot of fun experimenting with different structures and yarns. I'm so happy that I can now design my own fabrics for a collection if I wanted to. Finding a weaving mill that would be willing to weave those designs however, is very difficult. The images below are from my collection The Voyager's Mementos. It was inspired by a a nomad traveling the world and all the marvelous sights and cultures they encounter. You can find more images of the collection under Works.
I'm trying to post more often than I have in the past few months. That means also updating my WORKS page. The reason for the scarce posts recently is simply school, school, school! The amount of school work hasn't decreased, I just decided that I need to squeeze in some time for my little space here on the interwebs in my hectic schedule. These are some of the samples from a knitting course I took before the holidays. It was a short and very hectic course but I learned a lot.
