I am a passionate and prolific inkle weaver. I began weaving on inkle looms over 3 decades ago and I'm still having fun experimenting with new materials, patterns and products. My blog at www.ASpinnerWeaver.com tells the stories of my inspirations and what I do with them. On this board I hope to connect with other inkle weavers and share more inspirations, ideas and resources.
Captured 'plying their trades' at a museum in Glastonbury. He is an Inkle Weaver (Shakespeare mentions inkles three times in his works - the earliest is in "Love's Labours Lost" [Act III, Scene I] which was written about 1590). He is dressed as an Inkle Peddler who went from door to door selling his wares with samples attached to his jacket.
Beautifully woven by Kelly Birke. Inspired by the Middle Kingdom's fencing award, the Cavendish Knot. Since there were long floats on the backside, she lined it with linen fabric. I've not seen anyone use this pickup method in this way, and I think it's brilliant!
