Weaving in Gettysburg

I spent the weekend weaving in Gettysburg.  The Central Pennsylvania Basket Weaver's Guild hosted the 2013 Weaving Odyssey featuring workshops taught by gifted weavers and teachers from throughout the United States .  Classes were offered from Thursday evening through Sunday morning.

 The first workshop I took was taught by Marla Helton, a mixed media weaver from Indiana.  Beginning with palm inflorescence as spokes  I wove a tapestry of mixed fibers and textures.  The weaving was attached to a table top frame.  One weaving has a purple color scheme and the second weaving has a blue and yellow color scheme.
