In the last several months, I’ve dived into a very deep rabbit hole - weaving and spinning. Working with fiber is an astoundingly complex, rich and deep area to study, rich with techniques, skills, materials and crafts.
I started with handspinning with a cheap drop spindle and a small sample pack of different wool fibers.
As a test run, to see if I would actually like weaving, I used a basic tapestry loom, available easily in craft stores here, but wove a scarf on it.
Regular weaving and spinning project updates
In addition to the tutorials I’ve published for novice weavers to help set up various looms, I publish regular exclusive creative project updates with loads of photos, tips and tricks, as well as occasional creative process videos and creativity sessions for patrons of the LearnedWords Patreon.
Special offer for Supporters tier (5 euros) until 14 December - I’ll paint you an original art postcard with my new acrylic paints!
Now, what are you curious about?
Go chase that rabbit!
