the Design and Weaving Process for a Reinterpretation of Laurie
Herrick's "Circus Op"
The warping process
took two and a half days (approximately fifteen hours) which included winding
the spools for the sectional beam, threading the tension box, and turning
the warp beam ten times for each one inch section to complete the 36"
wide warp. There are 7-1/2 yards of 30 ends in each one inch section.
