One Thread Project: Sample 2
In the second sample, I focused on creating a strong dynamic by using contrasting textures. The foreground is made from short lengths of warp which were knotted onto two single warps, one near each edge of the tapestry. These were added at regular intervals after every few rows of plain weave. The plain weave added strength and stability, anchoring the knots in place as the tapestry grew. The short lengths were then frayed to become soft and tousled in comparison to the hard background texture.
