Frames for Aboriginal Weavers

It's always surprising what we are asked to make in the Shed and this is an example of a prototype of a weaving frame for a group of Aboriginal women.  Up till now the members of the group have been working on the legs of upturned dining chairs, hardly an item that lends itself to quality work (and where do they sit?)

The original 'mud map' the Shed was given was bears little if any resemblance to what we ended up with but this final trail model was received very warmly and has been taken away for 'field testing and evaluation'.

We expect, that if approved, we will be asked to make at least 6 more frames so have begun looking for laminated board to put aside in readiness for the bulk order.
