Materials for some experimental weaving

Kozo cloth

Bark cloth (actually darker than this)
 These are some purchases I have made over the last few months. I am hoping when I have finished all the exhibitions for this year to do some experimental weaving over the winter using the bark cloths as backgrounds for woven additions.
Throwster's silk

Crimped hemp

Beaten Kozo

Photo taken in New Zealand of some dried foliage
The beaten Kozo would be ideal for the weaving material for this image. Its very stiff and brittle at present but I think I can work with it damp and then it dries stiff again.
