We went to a 3-day takadai workshop with Makiko Tada last month, which was great fun and very informative. I’ve finally finished the sampler I started there. I’d decided beforehand that I wanted to focus on double layered pickup, even though I’d only made one double layered braid before (for an exchange). Pickup is fiddly, so it takes patience, but I love the result and I am impatient to do more. Click on the picture for a closer view.
