A chance to get up close to the raw material, the balls spun by hand and listen to Scott talk about her feel for the materials and her process. Scott starts by making a rough drawing of the design to be woven but the real interest for her comes while actually weaving. For instance , judging which grey to use as there are a number of gradations and textures from dark to pale, soft to coarse and whichever one is chosen will then blend and contrast with the other colours surrounding it. After a rug is finished it is washed in the bath and mothproofed so that it shrinks and felts and is made tougher. The rugs can be sewn together lengthwise to make a stair carpet or they can be sewn together to make larger rugs. The principles of design, such as perspective and proportion, allow for extreme versatility in design and texture.
