Paper yarn on red cotton warp. Wedge Weaving

Following a retreat at Sue Lawty’s Tapestry Studio in Hebden Bridge, Sue challenged our group (West Dean Diploma group of 2021) to take 100 gm of paper yarn and to compare and contrast our efforts in a year’s time. Watch this space as I am wedge weaving with some dyed paper yarn now.
