The Journal For Weavers, Spinners and Dyers - UK - Issue 280, Winter 2021
Each issue of the Journal of Weavers Spinners and Dyers is packed with fascinating stories and information. You'll learn so much and enjoy the beautiful settings.
"In this issue Babs Behan writes about the Bristol Cloth project working to make cloth production local again. Chris Alexander revisits his time running a carpet workshop in Uzbekistan with journeys into Afghanistan to buy natural dyes. Continuing with colour, Theo Wright looks at the interaction of complex patterns and colour; and Stacey Harvey-Brown explores colour- and-weave and shadow weave – from simple but effective to complex. For spinners, tackling a big project can be daunting; Sonya Hammond describes turning several kilos of wool into a big blanket by planning, sampling, then taking it step by step. We have a brief tribute to linen weaver Alison Morton who died this year, and in the first of an occasional series on textile collections, mills and museums, Carol Christiansen explores textiles in the Shetland Museum."
