Table Runners

A 2-year break.  Almost forgot the site existed.  Mary has an Ashford 8-shaft table loom.  After work, as a diversion, you can sit for half an hour and throw the shuttle through some more of the warp.  The latest experiment has been two ‘weft-dominant’ designs to create table runners.  By keeping the warp taut and deliberately slackening the weft you force the weft threads to hide the warp and to create a bold tapestry pattern.  These are for the Hangjik tables.

I have been away from Runjeva for a year or more.  Why?  Well the real answer is: come and see!

The old house has been loved and mended.  Craftsmen with skills in stone and mud and lime came to visit – almost constantly – and now it is the end of winter.

One more month of work and our little experiment in rural tourism should be open!
