This weaving is woven in a Krokbragd structure, which is a Norwegian weaving structure. It is done in wool with a cotton warp. This weaving entailed throwing the shuttle 3 times to acheive one row in the design. It is therefore a very dense weave.
My inspiration for this project was my Norwegian heritage. The piece is called "Norway" and is 6"w X 16.5"h and is a landscape. At the top of the weaving you can see the blue sky with a few clouds. Moving down you can see snow capped mountains, caribou, and some trees as one progresses down the mountain. Perched in the hills is a sod roofed kirke or church. And finally, in the foreground are men and women in traditional costume.
