Almost there! The Boucherouite rug is moving along. I hope to finish it this week.
Saturday I attended a Zoom seminar on “Women Artisans of Morocco”, sponsored by the Textile Museum Associates of Southern California. Over 1000 people were in attendance! Some via Zoom and some via YouTube Live. The speaker was Dr. Susan Schaefer Davis. She was very knowledgeable about introducing the women and their work. Her presentation included discussion of rugs, embroideries and handmade buttons of the High and Middle Atlas Mountains. I came away with a new knowledge and appreciation for Moroccan textiles.
I finished reading ”Color Choices” by Stephen Quiller. I have not studied the colour wheel to that depth before. I have informally learned it, but not the theory behind it and how to use it to create a cohesive colour scheme. My use of colour is largely intuitive. This was a good read for me.
”The Farm” is slow going. I’m still selecting fibre and embellishments to explore techniques. Plus I continue to research techniques in an effort to decide which ones I’m going to use. I have a choice of painting the sky, reverse hooking it, or using canvas embroidery techniques on it. I need to experiment a bit to see which will suit the piece better.
I am not sure what this week holds, but it promises to be busy. If you have been, thanks for reading! Have a productive week everyone!
