Balloon Fiesta


Jennifer
 

Hi All, Do any of you know where I might find an eight harness draft for a hot air balloon?  I’m going to be the featured artist of the month at our art gallery in Albuquerque and thought that it would be fun to get into the spirit of the balloon fiesta.  Any ideas would be helpful.  Thanks, Jennifer

LONG ago an engineer was working out one in a Handwoven, I think  A model ended up in her child's bedroom.  Meg Welch

Thanks, I looked her up in Handwoven indexes and balloons.  Couldn’t find either.  I’ll keep looking and thanks again.  Jennifer

Could it have been weaver’s.?  It was back when my joints and brain worked.

I made a "sculpture" of a hot air balloon back in 1982. Not 8 shafts though. It was done in strips on my 4 shaft table loom, the pieces cut out and sewn together. (Picture attached.)

Impressive!  Looks like you have talents other than weaving.  Regards, Jennifer

It would seem that any of the summer/winter structures on point could weave a balloon shape

YOu might try first sketching the simplest balloon shape you can. Then try
putting that shape into something that you can weave on your loom.
I have a little sheep graphic - 12 x 12 pixels that I have used for
blankets, a quilt, greeting cards and other things - it lends itself to
block or profile designs.
