It is important to have a good bench for the loom
It is important to have a good weaving bench for the loom. Weaving Ergonomics gives a great activity for strengthening back, shoulder, and thigh muscles.
Since Dawn began weaving this year, she has been complaining of back and shoulder pains. As a result, she now takes “neurofen” and wears a back brace until this afternoon.
This afternoon, her very expensive loom bench came. After weaving, she wasn’t experiencing any back or shoulder pain.
Weaving ergonomics has been a hot topic e.g. see here
The most important thing is to maintain a straight back while weaving in order to avoid back and shoulder pain. When you weave, you must sit at a height that allows your back to remain straight. In the case of a floor loom, if the bench is too low, the treadle becomes difficult to use, and it is also more difficult to throw the shuttle.
After suffering so much back and shoulder pain for so long, Dawn was thrilled to receive the bench. Since finding a good support bench was so difficult, we were very happy to find this one. It was a pleasure watching Dawn weave so quickly this afternoon. Weaving has become so easy and enjoyable for Dawn now that she enjoys it so much.
We invite you to come to her studio/gallery and experience her work for yourself! Graham will be getting a tiny house on wheels so people can stay with us on vacation in August.
