Students in my looping workshops and eCourse are always curious about how I produce the multicolor waxed linen thread I often provide. It's a simple process I learned years ago in a workshop with Lissa Hunter. While preparing for this weekend's Burundi Looping class for Flambeau Area Fiber Arts, I shot a short video.
My apologies for the abrupt end. The phone rang. The dog barked. You didn't miss a thing.
When I post these barely edited videos, I feel compelled to do what, in my family, is called an "aw, honey." That's because my dad, an amazing woodworker, always says (while you're opening a gift wrapped in newspaper and duct tape), "Aw, honey, it's not perfect because of this and this and this...."
Let's just say I work really hard on the videos that are part of my online workshops. This one, on the other hand, got done while leftovers were heating for lunch. Hope you like it anyway!
P.S. I posted a while back on another way of painting thread using Dye-na-Flow fabric paint on non-waxed linen.
