I spent the whole of 2019 working on my first and only book baby and can I tell you, I didn't hold back.
I wrote everything you need to know about weaving looms and tools, warp yarns and weft yarns. I wrote extensive guides on warping the loom, various weaving techniques and how to create perfect tension in your work.
What's more you ask? I also created 18 beautiful projects to adorn your home with, plus how to make a DIY weaving loom.Get the Book

I had a lovely customer of mine named Jane ask about spinning bamboo and I thought I'd experiment and do a blog post for others who may be interested as well.
Bamboo fibre compared to wool is much silkier, softer and lighter. I would consider this to be a more intermediate to advanced fibre to spin on it's own due to its slippery, silky nature. The staple length is approximately 10cm long.
I'm based in Newcastle, Australia and usually run workshops at least once a month locally. As you can imagine, that's a little hard right now with the current COVID-19 situation we have found ourselves in. So, I'm taking a bit of a break for the rest of 2020. My husband and I are about to start building a new studio in our backyard in Lambton where we will both be able to work from AND hold workshops and private lessons in the future. We are very much looking forward to sharing more on this with you soon.

In this instalment of The Travelling Loom with Kate Dick, we are deep diving into three dimensional weaving to create organic pods. These pods are hand woven as flat shapes in soft colours, which Kate morphs into three dimensional pieces by hand stitching and shaping, before over-dyeing in deeper colours. The process is fascinating to follow as each pod changes and evolves in shape and colour.
