The samples at the Jacquard loom in Lisio

You can see the results of the projects on picasaweb together with some photo's of the fondation. My own work can be seen here:

As  you can see are the colours different from the sample, this is because I changed weft rotation.

Fondazione Arte della Seta Lisio

Back home from a week in Florence, Italy. I went with three students  of the specialisation years of KASKAdko, Gele Huis, department weaving and two collleagues to the Fondazione Lisio.
After half a day of textile analising and half a day of computer initiation (point-carrĂ©), the real work started...  Adjusting the artwork, determing weaving structures and testing these on the jacquard loom...
