We are delighted to be settling back to weaving and starting the new year with a very special project. Inspiration comes from the cheeky chatty magpie. At a glance, the magpie is a brash and brazen bird in black and white. However, when you look a little closer you find a wonderfully intelligent and strong bird with stunning shimmers of blue, green and oily purple.
The project is already underway with the winding of an organic cotton warp in black and white. Once the warp is wound, we will sley the reed and thread the heddles – then it will be time to start throwing the shuttle! We will be weaving some baby wraps that will go travelling to experienced baby wearers around Ireland – can’t wait to see how they are received!
