Jacquard Power loom

Taking an MA in Textiles has given me the opportunity to try weaving again. I was taught basic weave in the 1st year of my degree and loved the process up to the point of sitting in front of the loom repetivily pushing a shuttle to and fro.
With Jacquard weaving i am able to work digitally which is my passion, still being fairly mathmatical about the preparation but not doing the weave.
These images show the loom with my fabrics till attached. The fabrics are for the shrine as an altar cloth.
