These aren't hand woven, but I wanted to share them anyway. We've been learning to use a computer controlled jacquard loom at school. The green bird was my first try, to get used to how the loom and the programming worked. Later on I made terrycloth (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=402763.0) and an owl pattern, where I tried doing different shades of gray.





I think I don't need to explain how much fun this was. I barely could leave for lunch when class was over. Wink

They are! We only had two lab classes, so I just had time to get familiar with the looms and start thinking of all the things you could make and then it was over. I'll have to go back and do some more weaving on my free time so I can try out everything I didn't have time for before.

These are beautiful!  So very detailed!  What does the other side look like?

What is it like to use a computerised loom?  Once it has been programmed is it quick to weave?  Your course sounds like so much fun!  I am very jealous  Smiley

Thank you!

What is it like to use a computerised loom?  Once it has been programmed is it quick to weave?  Your course sounds like so much fun!  I am very jealous  Smiley

First you pick the image you want to use and prepare it in Photoshop until it looks like you want and has the right number of shades (from 2 up to about 7-10) and load it in the weaving program. There you pick a weave for each of the shades and fix the pattern (to put it short Smiley ). Then you just load it into the loom with a floppy disk (old school!) and let it do the rest of the work!

Maybe it made a meter of fabric in a couple of minutes or so. But I was so excited to see the finished fabric that I'm not sure about the time. And yes, the course was a lot of fun. Smiley

Wow! those are amazing! I love the bird cloth it has wonderful shading.

The more I see computerized weaving the more I want to try it.
