Meet our Featured Artist Val Mason Daniel.
Val has taught basic a basic loom course here in the past, and we hope to set up a new class in the future.
Val started her project, called The Golden Ear Ring, during the Grand Opening weekend at PoCo Inspired, by setting up her custom made loom and spending some of the weekend getting started on the weaving.
Looms come in many sizes, but this one is HUGE !! You have to see it.
The pattern was designed by Margie Deeb who is a well know bead artist.
The seed beads are being supplied by PoCo Inspired.
The setup is a split, continuous warp (advanced warping). A double needle weaving technique is being used.
Val will be in working on the project off and on over the month of June. Please make sure you stop in and see the progress.
The finished project will be donated to one of the Children’s Charities for their fund raisers.
