Weaving: Step by Step
People ask me questions about my process all the time. How long does it take to make a piece? What kind of machine do you use to do this? What steps do you go through to get a finished piece? Why is this scarf so expensive? Those are hard questions to answer in 10 words or less.
Obviously it varies vastly from piece to piece. Some pieces are easy to plan and set up and take a long time to weave: we call those slow cloth. Some pieces weave up quickly but the planning and loom setup take a long time.
Below is a storyboard of the steps involved in creating a piece in my studio.
Total time 1-3 hours
I have been happily weaving since my son was born in 1988.
