Hemp 3

I like weaving across a limited number of warps. The narrow proportions enable the sample to grow at speed which brings a sense of immediacy to the process. Ideas can be tested out and distilled quickly; the warps move differently on the frame during weaving. I like playing around with the sample when cut off the loom. Suddenly it is free to move - I can fold, coil, wrap, and layer it over itself and consider the possibilities.
