TAPESTRY WEAVING W/ RUST & ECO-BUNDLING
INTERMEDIATE 3-D ART
natural fibers, rusty objects & windfall
a new assignment that was a hit!
A couple of weeks ago I posted about being inspired by the work of Alice Fox & India Flint.
So I asked my kiddos to put the two ideas together onto a tapestry woven base of all natural fibers.
It worked and they loved all the processes and the results.
This was their second time to weave.
The first was in their Beginning year where they wove a 3-dimensional bird's nest.
This time I had them warp up a frame loom which they loved.
junior Shreya Sheth liked it so much that she made two weavings.
When I brought them home for a gentle washing to full & soften up a bit,
my husband caught sight of them and was instantly smitten.
He wants one so he can use it for a guitar strap. :)
Maybe when I retire ha ha
And here they are now on display at the District Art Show.
Wish the picture was a bit better quality but the light is so bad where they are on display.
