Making a warp
Today was very intense. We learnt the process of making our own warp. Initially figuring out all the technical ends per inch detail and then constructing the warp on a warping mill. We then had to start the long process of threading up a loom. It was very physical and far more complex than I had ever imagined. And I never realised how useful my GCSE maths would be for a textile degree! Despite this it was such an interesting and exciting day. Knowing and being able to complete the whole process from start to finish is extremely gratifying I can't wait to start weaving and designing for our interiors project.
