Detail of Collective Weaving
All the colors of the wool were dyed naturally with left overs of the Rietveld school canteen. The greens come from red and yellow onion peels, the brown color is made with coffee grinds and the pink and purple colors are from the avocado seed dyepots.
In this picture you see a combination of flat binding (one over, one under) sometimes done with double threads. The knots, or in my own words, 'het Berber Knoopje', I have taught most participants. Some Dutch people recognize these as 'Smyrna knoopje' (Latchhooking) which looks very similar indeed, although Smyrna is not a handweaving technique because yarns are being pulled through a fabric with a tool.
