John is a self taught weaver. H got interested in it and then became very methodical and thorough in his learning. He says he has mainly used books and has found those the easiest to follow and learn from. There is also plenty on You Tube to help anyone who wants to learn to weave. It is something which takes time and thought. It is something you need to practice. John likes working on traditional patterns and learning how to make them.To the left is a long piece which can be cut down into woven place mats. All you have to do is hem the side edges. The other piece is a traditional eastern European pattern . John’s work is incredibly neat and weaving is something he likes to think about and improve.
