Clasped weft table runner


More of a table centre piece, it doesn't quite have the length of a runner. This is the piece I wove for my recent rigid heddle clasped weft video tutorial.


I dyed the cottons specifically for this project. I wanted a good contrast between the variegated rainbow and the blues.


I love the clasped weft technique, the finished product and the process of randomly incorporating lengths of colour.


I hemstitched whilst on the loom so that the piece would sit flat on the table.


If you like this piece as much as I do it is available to purchase in my Etsy shop. And if you want to give the technique a go yourself please take the time to watch my video, it's not as scary as it looks!

Kelly,

I watched your video to see how you made your table runner. It is an excellent video. You explained everything very clearly. I don't think I will become a weaver, but I still enjoyed your video very much. I love the colours in the runner. I wonder if you ever want to keep your creations instead of selling them.

I love how bright your runner is! Purple is my second favourite colour. I will have to watch your video.

Thank you for taking the time to watch Sue. If I really want to keep something I've made, then I do! But, when I make a sale I get to buy more yarn and keep weaving, so it's a pretty good deal :)
