Today, I will share with you how you can make an incredibly simple wall hanging for your home or office. Several minimal designs have caught my eye recently and I knew that wanted to try one out.
Wall hangings interest me because I love weaving and tactile art, which can add a layer to your space and add texture. On occasion, I like to weave and usually I want to explore more intricate designs. Then, there was the woven necklace that I made last summer and the wave of weaving projects that I rode leading up to it. Below is a simple weaving that I made using my Harrisville lap loom, style B.
I knew it was time to give a minimal modern wall hanging a try.
For this project, I decided to work in a charcoal and ivory yarn that I already had at home.
For this project, you will need:
I laid out my 12" brass hoop and pre-cut a group of long yarn which, I then folded in half.
Then, I began to create a larch knot by folding the looped and pulling the loose ends through the loop. I continued by grouping the securely looped pieces together until I needed to stop to prepare more lengths of yarn.
For this project, I decided to leave the yarn long and trim it later.
Here it is hanging on a knob that I screwed into my wall, so that I could see the hanging effect.
Lastly, I decided to separate the black yarn and place an ivory grouping of yarn in the middle using the same loop knot technique. At the end, you can trim the yarn straight across or at an angle. It is completely up to you! I will be hosting a weaving workshop this Summer in July. Please leave a comment below if you would like to be notified and invited to join the class. The workshop will be guided by a professional textile artist. You will be guided through the creation of an intermediate level wall hanging.
