Weaving ikat with natural dye! Summer 2014

Tree Homage
Tree Homage. 2013-14. Warp ikat; cotton; locally sourced natural dyes: madder root and cosmos. 59”x 24” (150 x 61 cm)

I have been waiting to weave up the warp that I dyed in the summer of 2013. Finally, I have the time to put it on the loom and weave it up. Dyes are from madder and cosmos flowers. The weave structure requires 16 shafts and I am using 3 colors in the weft.Loom-view-sm
