Results from Bead Leno Workshop

The June meeting was held at Joan McLauchlan's and took the form of a mini-workshop on bead leno. Here are three scarves that Joan has since made with that method.  The one in the centre was on the loom in the previous photos.
This photo gives an indication of the lightweight and lacy construction.
Another scarf was made with fine silk ribbons for the warp, giving a rich lustrous finish in lovely caramel colours made by dyeing some of the warp with tea.

Joan shows a sample of the bead leno done in blocks with a thicker yarn as a possible technique for a baby blanket.

More photos from the July meeting coming soon.
