A new lampshade!

My new lampshade, woven in linen and cotton, is inspired by the colours of autumn. I have incorporated some ideas and techniques explored at a workshop with master weaver Barbara Walker held recently at the Handweavers Studio in London. Barbara is a highly respected textile artist based in Oregon USA, particularly renowned for her development of unique supplementary warp patterning effects. Her inspirational workshop has given me so many ideas…. if only there were more hours in the day!

This particular design is adapted from a turned draft of a design originally conceived by Dr William Bateman, an American chemistry professor turned weaver who took traditional weaving patterns in completely new directions.
