In this months Handwoven magazine Karen Richards from Vic, Australia has an article about weaving with emu feathers. I liked this project so much I had to have a go!
Thanks to Brett & David Pollock from Wooleen Station in the Murchison, who now have a nice dent in their ute, provided the feathers for my ‘Karen Richards’ shawl. Check out Karen’s website to view her beautiful shawl that featured in ‘Handwoven’ http://www.karenrichards.net/weaving.htm
Weaving with feathers is heaps of fun, slow, but fun!.
