Student Work: Jansen

Jansen was in my sewing class, but he is technically Anthony's student.  Anthony taught Jansen everything about the loom and weaving, I only answered a few questions.  I also served as cheerleader and goad.  Jansen started weaving by jumping into the deep end of the pool: his first project was a chenille scarf at 16 epi.  That is a challenge for a beginning weaver!  It took a long time to do all that weaving on the Dorothy loom.  We tried to decrease the boredom and tedium by changing weft colors, using black, forest green, ruby and gold chenille.  Jansen did a great job!
