More about Me

Michelle from Threefold Designs and Crafts For Misfits has been interviewing tapestry artists that she has come across through her own interest in weaving tapestry. She is currently a student working towards the Australian Diploma in Tapestry Weaving. A very capable and interesting fibre-artist in her own right, she recently asked me to reply to some questions related to tapestry weaving. To catch my interview and that of two other tapestry weavers, click on the link to her site below.

  1. Boy! I sure wish I could find a tapestry artist around here. I would love to take a lesson or three. I just attended the Midwest Fiber & Folk Fair last Friday and do you know that there was nary a tapestry artist to be found? I even asked at the information booth. Supposedly there is a similar event being held in August at the Stevens Convention Center. I aim to attend and find someone to give me a wee bit of help.

    I'm amazed at how you can incorporate your sketches into these tapestries. It seems like it would be so complex!

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.
