I was too late to book for this workshop, run by Christina Chisholm, but visited it to take photos. When I arrived Christina was demonstrating how to avoid wasting precious handspun when using it as warp. She had a strong, commercially spun yarn, wound onto the back beam of her loom, and threaded through heddles and reed. A handspun warp, tied onto this could then be woven with very little waste. At the front a cord threaded through groups of warp ends and lashed to the front beam would likewise save waste. Christina had also brought samples from her Certificate of Achievement for the group to look at. When I left the group were starting to spin silk.
