warping up

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is the first time I have warped up my new Ashford tapestry loom, its nice and easy due to the rotating mechanism. I have  completed the cartoon for the next tapestry which will just act as a rough guide for weaving. I have also finished dyeing some lovely spring greens and bright reds/purples to start. The tapestry will be of banana leaves, fruit and blossom with a lizard in somewhere! My challenge in this piece is to give an idea of rain and water droplets, the tropical storm kind. I will take photos as I go so you will be able to  see it slowly grow.
