pass the shuffle through the shudder

11Apr10

The late Peter Collingwood was a master of his craft; weaving

A weaver of 50 years he was an incredibly respected figure and his son, Jason, has carried on the tradition and is a weaver also.  (http://www.rugweaver.co.uk/)

He had a keen interest in the weft threads being woven at an angle in which he developed the techniques ‘Anglefell’ and ‘Macrogauze’ enabling the warp threads to move even further sideways.

“Handweaving is artistically justifiable only if it can keep abreast of contemporary movements in the world of architecture and fashion, if it can capture the spirit of the age in its textiles” Peter Collingwood
