U pripremi za izlozbu/Preparing for an Exhibition

I managed to catch cold over Easter break. I was sick, with runny nose and not really inspired for any weaving project last week. All I was able to do was to finalize spinning my wool supplies and continue spinning the silk rovings. I made some wild, wild thick wooly yarn, and some lustrous mulberry silk yarn. I will put the photos as soon as I make them.
Otherwise, I have finally set the date for my exhibition in Budapest. From Friday May 25th to 28th, 2007, a selection of my handwoven works will be exhibited at
Treehugger Dan's bookstore/cafe/gallery. If you happen to be around, do drop by and visit. It is a great little place to get all those books you wanted to read, drink a cup of organic coffee, have a chat with the owner and see one or another exhibition and buy a small present for your friends and relatives.
In preparation for the exhibition, I been pushed to finally (start) photographing my works, and - for those of you who will not make it to Budapest in May - here are the photos of my works that have not been shown to public yet. Enjoy!
Uhvatila sam prehladu za vrijeme uskrsnjih praznika, bila bolesna, curio mi je nos i bijah bez inspiracije za bilo kakav tkalacki projekt prosli tjedan. Sve sto sam mogla napraviti bilo je ispresti ostatak one sarene vune i nastaviti presti svilu. Potrosila sam svu vunenu predju i napravila veselu, divlju deblju, sarenu vunu, i oprela prekrasnu, tanku svilenu predju. Slike stavljam cim sve poslikam.
Inace, napokon sam dogovorila dan za izlozbu mojih radova u Budimpesti. Od petka do ponedjeljka, od 25-og do 28. svibnja, izbor mojih tkalackih radova biti ce izlozen u Treehugger Dan's Bookstore/Cafe/Gallery. Ako ste negdje u kraju, dodjite u posjet. To je lijepo malo mjesto gdje mozete povoljno nabaviti sve knjige koje ste ikad planirali procitati, popiti salicu organski uzgojene kave, cavrljati sa vlasnikom, pogledati izlozbu u tijeku, i mozda kupiti mali poklon prijateljima i rodbini.
U pripremi izlozbe, napokon sam se primila slikanja mojih tkanih radova, i za vas koji necete imati priliku biti u Budimpesti krajem svibnja, odlucila sam staviti slike radova koji jos nisu javno pokazani. Uzivajte!

Hi Olinka, thank you for your helpful comments on my blog, especially about my IE problem; I needed that feedback! Sorry to hear about your cold, I hope you're on the mend. Your weaving is lovely. I especially like the last photo; what a wonderful combination of purple, green, and texture!

Olinka, koliko vremena ti treba za tkanje jednog metra platna?

Olinka said...

Well.... tesko je samo tako reci koliko treba vremena za tkanje metra platna. Brzina tkanja ovisi o materijalu, odabranoj mustri, broju razlicitih boja koje mijenjas i naravno sirini tkanja.
Vuna (pogotovo malo deblja) ide puno brze nego tanke niti svile, pamuka, lana.
Dakle, za deblje materijale se brzina krece od dva i pol, tri sata po metru za za tanje niti to moze trajati daleko vise.
