Using a historic draft as the basis for a new tapestry technique. In Montana one of our favorite leisure activities is Fly Fishing. Watch as the loom is threaded and The Fly Fisherman appears. Background fabric patterns are the insects and fish that you find in the blue waters of the Madison and Gallatin Rivers.
I had a great loom experience this week. I was asked by the children’s program director of my church to look at a loom she had rescued and to see if I could set it up for children to weave on during Sunday School. I walked into the room on Tuesday and discovered this treasure, a 45″ Leclerc Gobelin Tapestry loom. After careful examination I can see that it is missing a few parts, but could it still be used for weaving in its present condition?
