Backyard Garden Loom
I have always loved the idea of a garden loom, but I was disenchanted when the leaves and flowers and twigs I wove into it wilted and turned brown in a day and turned it into a modern art / composting display piece instead of something pretty. So I decided to turn it into an all weather art yarn loom. I built it by attaching 4 branches together and mounted it deep into the ground. Then I used art yarn to warp it.
Then when I hosted a backyard spinning retreat last summer I asked each artisan to "Weave their Mark" by weaving a yarn in the loom. I love the way it came out.
