Frida Hansen wove her wool open warp transparent tapestries on a vertical loom. When I was preparing a class on the technique, a prospective student asked, “Can I use my Baby Wolf (a small floor loom)?” Sure, I thought and said, but I tried it out myself, to see if I encountered differences or could share any tips.
I wove a small tapestry based on Frida Hansen’s Bonderoser (Farmer’s Roses) pattern. See this post on the pattern and start of the project, “Finding Frida Hansen in the Nasjonalmuseet Archives.”
As I prepared for my workshop on the Frida Hansen’s technique, I wove a few samples to test various aspects (warp, weft, design, etc.). I wrote notes to help me remember which things to discuss with students. The baby Wolf worked out well, but if you would like to read the comments I wrote for my workshop, that page is here.
