How to allow yourself to Experiment with your Mirrix
By Amber Kane
After doing a demo on how to cut t-shirts into one continuous strip, I decided that I was going to dive in and weave with t-shirt yarn I’d created. When I’d set up my Mirrix, I decided that I wanted this piece to be full of experimentation, allowing myself not to worry about the finished product, and to pay more attention to trying some new things.
1. I experimented with my warp set up
2. I played with several different tapestry sections
3. I wove with the t-shirt yarn
4. I played a bit with my tension
In the video below, I share in more detail the things that I tried.
Sometimes when I experiment, I love the results, and others, well , I learn that I don’t want to repeat any of the things that I tried, but that’s important to learn as well.
Below, I share a bit more about my creative process, and what you can do with pieces that you just don’t love.
