Knotless Netting

Knotless net covered rock
The first time I saw a stone covered in knotless netting
was at Nancy Bauch's beautiful White Forest Pottery shop a cuple of years ago.
I was very intrigued about that weaving technique.
A couple of days ago I 'googled' the term and found
a couple of good how to's and a great video.
After a bit of practice I was able to cover my first stone!
I loved the fact that all I needed was the rock, some waxed linen and
my hands...no other tools necessary.
It is resting on my red screen printed linen tote by
the very talented Arounna of Bookhou

Thanks so much for the links on the netting techniques! I've been wanting to try this for ages but had no idea what it was called or where to look. I can't wait to start experimenting... I have to look through my collection of rocks to find a good candidate. Your first project, like all your projects, looks wonderful! Have a great weekend.
