Ref 4.6.1a and b
A)Top row;variegated perle thread
Second row; procion dyed cotton tanne and cord thread experiment with letter shapes using weaving and buttonhole stitch -more practice needed!
Third and fourth row; As many of my pulled threads were short used them to knot threads together. An 'm' should be visible in third row! Not sure if I am seeing things but in pulling six threads into a horizontal 'v' shape in fourth and then catching them with a series of knots the image reminds me of 4 .2.21 scribbler 'calligraphy' image.
B) Top row: Needle weaving and buttonhole stitch
Second and third row; fabric strip weaving and wrapping
Fourth row; diagonal fabric and jute thread wraps
Fifth row; herring bone stitch
Ref 4.6.2 Moving on from the dyed yellow cotton I decided to pick a looser, bulker structure of fabric. Taking advantage of a friends dyeing session with procion dyes the following happened...an overwhelming green and pink. While pleased with the fabrics that came from the session I was concerned that they were not in this modules chosen theme, however made the decision to use the hessian as I wanted to experiment on the looser weave!
Ref 4.6.3 Ref 4.6.4
The diagonal stitching on bars sample, 4.6.3, shows threads that were dyed in the procion session, string, perle,cotton ribbon and strips of fabric.
In 4.6.4 diagonal stitching on cross sections shows variegated perle threads being used
Introducing machine stitching into the next two samples, tucks being held with hand stitches in 4.6.5, left . Dyed string being used to connect the machine caught threads in 4.6.6, right. For me this piece had a look of the Arbroath Declaration about it, see 4.2.3.
