More to Learn

Warp for the workshop with Bonnie Inouye

One of the attractions of weaving is that you can never learn everything in one lifetime.  

For quite a few years I simply haven't had the brain power to think much beyond my creative borders, and since that continual learning aspect was a big draw for me, I felt as though I was stuck in the same old, same old. 

But, just like the universe worked hard to get me to a loom in the first place, another opportunity arrived when the time was right.

Turns out my hostess in TN was interested in taking a workshop with Bonnie Inouye that was taking place during my visit with her.  As soon as I found out, I asked if I could borrow a loom and take it, too. Turns out I could, so I am.  

The topic isn't entirely new to me, but it has been years since I have looked at it, plus Bonnie has been pushing the boundaries of the topic for a long time so it will be a good review and launch back into what I hope will be a more intellectual exploration of cloth construction.  Not to mention I will undoubtedly learn a whole lot more about using Fiberworks beyond the basics I am comfortable using.
