I was watching Double Binding Rag rug workshop 2015 video and a lady at 00:41 had a tool in her hand. I have that tool and was wondering what it is used for? It was handed down to me.
Hi Nick, that tool is called a temple or stretcher. It is used to keep the woven fabric at a width that is consistent with the width of the warp in the reed. A metal temple like this one is commonly used for weaving rugs.
This is so inspiring! Your message about weaving is so beautiful! I am going through your videos one by one and enjoying them! I love that you say “Weaving measures patience”
Hi Donna, I am delighted that you are finding your way around. Thank you for letting me know what you found that has meaning!
Welcome to my studio,
My goodness! How long was that warp??
I'm glad you stopped by for a visit. You will find handweaving here, along with some insights to ponder. Enjoy!
