Creating texture

The samples I’ve woven over the last month have focused on developing textural surfaces using techniques such as soumak knotting and weaving with textured fibres which add their own distinct characters and flavours to the woven surface.

In this piece, soumak knotting is carried out using sizel to create a regular pattern of distinctive, raised surface markings. I am inspired by scarification markings.

(sizel, jute, twine, rug wool)
