How can we do better with what we have?
So much in our lives can be reused, and/or put to a better use.
Preparation for weaving begins with the estimating and cutting of the warp, then attaching it to the loom (“warping the loom”).

The weft (plastic film) is collected and stored in bins. Sorting is done to separate by color, size and type. All bags are trimmed for length and opened to form a strip, then counted and bundled. The bags are then tied or stitched together, then wound onto a shuttle. The shuttle passes through the warp/ back and forth/ back and forth, as the treadles move the harnesses up and down.

Upon completion, the piece is cut off the loom. A triple line is stitched just inside the header and selvedges before the piece is cut to size.
