In 2000 my son and I moved from our comfy nest in Coromandel township, into a new temporary one on K. Road in Auckland city.
The front door of the flat opened directly onto the chaos of one of the countries busiest and most notorious inner city streets. It was in dramatic contrast to what me, the brash Earth Mother and my Rudolf Steiner educated boy were used to.
There were many, many K.Rd Kenny's living on or around Karangahape Road, and this is a weaving of one of them.
Although not a calm place to live it was probably one of the safest places to live in Auckland city. Thanks for sharing the adventure Izack, I hope you forgive me.

Tapestry Weavings By Stephenie Collin


I hope you find Warped Art & Design both interesting and inspiring, and that it will encourage anyone working with fibre to investigate and experiment further within their chosen field.

The basic loom, which is my tool of trade, has remained technologically unchanged. This aspect appeals to me as I weave contemporary images on a machine of such simple and ancient construction.

And if the loom be silenced,
then needles, threads and fingers
have plenty more to say.
