Fanny, Dorothy, and Hans: Weaving and basketmaking

Fanny is a 4-harness LeClerc Fanny floor loom, inherited from a friend's mother. Dorothy is a 4-harness LeClerc Dorothy table top loom. Hans is for Hands, for basketweaving, minus the d! All three, Fanny & Dorothy & Hans, have been busy of late. Some things I'm interested in:how structure determines form; the history and potential of encoded information; the very complex relationship between time, labor, and money; localization and preparation of materials; the utility of art; craft as service.
