Getting started...

At first I want to invite you to the exhibition PATTERNS/ Textile: a meeting between Art and Science. 'Het Gele Huis', St. Bavostraat 2, Wilrijk, Belgium from 20 June until 28 June.
Here is the weaving I submitted for the exhibition.

It is a replica of a Pre-Columbian weaving, using cotton in warp and weft. I handdyed the ground warp and weft with indigo. The additional warp and weft are in thinner, undyed cotton.
The intriguing part of the motive is that the same pattern shows at both sides. It was made on a six shaft loom, using selection rods to get the pattern.
