I have recently been on a course looking at weaving without a conventional loom.  It was a great chance to try new ideas, and incorporate natural objects.  This sample is made from slate, driftwood and coloured warp.  The weft is made from the same coloured warp.

Thank you!  Cheesy

I have some other samples from the class, I shall take some photos and share.  The classes were with Louise Martin, who is a fantastic weaver (and tutor!).  Her website has some amazing images.
