Sketchbook Musings

Away from the studio, trying to get focused on a day of sketching and planning up here on the farm, but to no avail. I'm being totally un-disciplined, shall I tidy the yellow room/library which screams chaos so as to allow myself a small work-space for fore mentioned creative doodles and musings, shall I snatch an hour in the garden, or will I warp up the loom in the kitchen? No. I shall post some pics from my sketch book and then skype Max. Sorry for this little self indulgence folks. 



  1. I like this post very much. All work and no play...well, you get the idea. Max is a cutie!

  2. I actually like to see the connection between the artist at thought/play, and the end product of that thinking time. Your blog shows that this time is something you already have put in motion. You will make a good tapestry weaver once you get started I think.

    Max is my daughter's, and is one of 3 granks in total. The other 2 are my sons and were made in Korea, VERY cute too.
    Yeah, and the yellow room did get 3/4 sorted.


Tapestry Weavings By Stephenie Collin


I hope you find Warped Art & Design both interesting and inspiring, and that it will encourage anyone working with fibre to investigate and experiment further within their chosen field.

The basic loom, which is my tool of trade, has remained technologically unchanged. This aspect appeals to me as I weave contemporary images on a machine of such simple and ancient construction.

And if the loom be silenced,
then needles, threads and fingers
have plenty more to say.
