A catalogue of errors, by David Griffiths and Alex McLean : This article presents a series of informal experiments in software and weaving, most of which were conducted as part of the Weaving Codes, Coding Weaves project.
Mixing Textile and Basket Weaving, Mould with weaving
twining and simple looping, making a connection with basketry and textiles. Work around simple moulds to make samples using both techniques and achieve an understanding of how to create woven structures, using a range of fine flexible materials.Twining involves the weaving of two threads using the fingertips, whilst the form is held in the hands. Processes covered will include joining of threads, patterning and developing a form. Each pod will incorporate some natural fibres such as hemp, nettle or linen and makers will be encouraged to think about their use of colour and texture. This will result in each pod having its own unique qualities.
