Closed weave using pink and cream card.

Paper weaving with cream and pink card. This differs from the one
above due to the thicker and thinner weave, but in a different configuration.

Silver shiny card woven with matt purple paper. The contrasting papers show depth within the weave.

Handmade paper previously made and dyed was used to weave a more open weave. It gave an uneven weave and a textured surface.

Weave showing a plastic bag and a bin bag. The roughness of the bin bag shows texture.

Weave using gift wrap and plain paper. This is particularly interesting as could use a fragmented photograph printed onto plain fabric

Magazine and plain paper weave

Weave using a newspaper. This could be definitely used again combining images to make new ideas.

Both of these materials, plastic against the hessian strap wove together, but could not hold its structure as the strap was coated with a plastic finish.

A previously made colour wash was deconstructed and woven with a fast food carton.

An onion sack was woven with gold leather. The weave in this enabled variations in shapes of weave.

Gold leather strips were woven with blue leather.
