Just a Few of Laura Fry's Samples from our Guild Testing Program

With today being Canada Day, we are featuring one of the Guild's Master Weavers.

I just got back from Olds College and was fortunate enough to be able to get a few pictures of some of Laura Fry's samples from her various levels of testing.  She also had samples from her research. Laura brought the samples so that students could see what was involved in our Guild testing.

It was so exciting to see so many tables filled with her wonderful work and I thank her for sharing her work with us here on our blog. The first table had a variety of samples many of which were created to match.

This butterfly was a double weave pick up created in pink and blue.  It was beautifully framed with the same blue.

Below that there were several samples woven in pinks and grays. If you click on the picture above, you will be able to see these samples a little better.

Laura also had a wonderful overshot woven in the same shade of grey but this time on a white warp.

The sample next to the overshot is a Summer and Winter.

Her tapestry sample, once again features the butterfly.  The brilliance of the butterfly ensures that it is the dominant feature against the subtle yet patterned background.  Truly a marvelous piece.  The last photo is a photo of table 2.

Such diversity of work from a great Canadian Weaver!
