Earth Loom – continued

Yesterday I finished warping up my Earth Loom. I put 16 warp threads on it for the 16 mysteries of Lakota understanding. The warp is a Linen Rug warp – I hope it will stand up to the elements well.

So then I wondered what will I weave with?

Well right there was my answer – some dried fern branches, some green ones too, a bit of cedar …

What else? I found an arbutus branch, put in some handspun wool (sheep live outside, this should be fine), and some salal …

There will be more to come. I hope that others will weave some found objects into it too. I think I might need to get some seaweed and driftwood to weave the earth and sea together.

Looking up …

and the view from above …

And my first post with some background on the Earth Loom can be found here.

Happy Weaving,

    Thank you for sharing your progress on your Earth Loom! I love the idea of an earth loom – perhaps a scaled down version for my postage stamp size yard!

    Can’t wait to see what you are adding next!

    Thanks all! A few more things have found their way into the weaving – some shells, some arbutus bark, some Big Leaf Maple leaves, honeysuckle berries (which were then eaten by a bird or deer), red plum tree leaves, some pine cones and some curly wisteria vine…

    Happy Weaving,

    I love your loom! I, too, want to build one in my yard to adorn with food for the birds during the winter months.

    Your loom has inspired me to just do it! Thanks!

    Be blessed, Leslie
