weaving shuttles

L400xW70xH60mm, China

 These are a pair of wooden shuttles for the hand loom.

Anyone interested in weaving and other Chinese craftwork should watch out for the workshop organized by the Jin Ze Arts Centre,  a not-for-profit art and craft organization aimed at the preservation and promotion of the fine tradition of Chinese craftsmanship by fostering exchanges of ideas and techniques between practitioners of traditional crafts and contemporary designers via innovative approaches.

Here is a weaving workshop held last March, wish I was there!
