In my previous entry, I mentioned spending quite a bit of time at TWIST in the weaving demonstration room. This was a room that was basically filled with, I believe, four looms, along with sewing machines and lots of fabrics and threads and all sorts of textile goodies. We spent quite a bit of time in this room, trying out the different looms and chatting up the lovely women there. I love photographing looms because there’s just so many lines and angles to them I always find a new aesthetic perspective on a loom if I move around it enough. Now is also a good time to mention that I got a new lens for my camera this summer, it’s taken me a while to get used to it but I’m loving the time I’m getting to spend with it.
One thing’s for sure, being here and seeing some of those beautiful fabrics really made me wish for a loom!
