Gorgeous Gourds!

The gourd project has finally been completed! Here are some photos of the finished gourds hanging from my studio ceiling. They have been woven using the coiled method with palm inflorescence and waxed linen thread.

Basket Cases

Today I went to the monthly meeting of the BasketCases, a sub-group of the Queensland Spinners and Weavers.
I worked on a couple of gourds that I had prepared by cutting, cleaning, varnishing and drilling holes in. I weaved palm inflorescence strands onto the top of the gourd using linen thread.
