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.
