Today during my work placement I am starting to set up my weave. 

Aviva has kindly lent me one of her table looms for me to do my sample pieces on. 

As you can see in the pictures above I started off with a plain cotton warp and then I started to stain the cotton with Turmeric and tea to give me a gradient of colour though my weave. 

I have been told that Turmeric and Tea does not need to be soaked in mordant before hand because it stains naturally. But after my weave is complete I will have to soak it in to a salt water bath to fix the colours.
