Springwild, 2014

This is part of a special series. Click here, here and here and here to see more of this series.

When we decided to host Weaving Springwild, we had no idea what to expect. In short, it was even more amazing than we had hoped!

We decided to share the photos below, so you can get a better feeling for the entire experience.

I hope you have enjoyed this portion of this special series as much as I have enjoyed sharing it!

Enjoy!

Handwoven tapestry by Kathy Beckwith, 23″ x 21″, Churro wool, 2014

This is the first tapestry Kathy wove after Springwild, incorporating what she learned during the retreat.

I love the stripes of plain weave, breaking up the sections of tapestry.

Enjoy!

Kathy Beckwith at Springwild, 2014

This Dose is part of a special series. Click here to see the previous posts about Kathy. And here and here to read more about this series.

This is the piece Kathy pulled off the loom at Springwild (more pictures below)!

Watching Kathy evolve artistically over the 10 days we spent together was truly inspiring! I loved seeing her mind and hands adapt to these new techniques and concepts, all the while learning to problem solve and allow her creativity come to light.

And her perfectionism and attention to detail resulted in beautiful selvages (especially for her first “building” project).

Enjoy!

Kathy Beckwith at Springwild, 2014

When Kathy joined us at Springwild, I proposed the idea of working with building techniques to produce curves. Knowing Kathy’s love of straight edges, I was a little nervous to do this. Building techniques, done for the first time or two, can result in some wonky selvedges and various other issues… and I really wanted her to love what she pulled off the loom during the retreat.

She accepted the challenge! During our time together, Kathy explored these new techniques (with great precision), inspired by the views from her loom (pictures below).

Enjoy!
