weaving a shroud

 

 

 

 

 

This piece of weaving was made for somebody who is not expected to live much longer. Her friends are each creating something that represents her life and will sew them together to make a shroud. This one was woven on the Touchstone loom and the many colours and textures formed a meditative activity for which we were glad to offer space. Despite some of the colours clashing or not sitting comfortably beside each other, the silver warp ran through the whole - as the weaver said, God was always there even when not particularly visible.
