Textile

My adventure with textiles begins at a very primitive level. It’s fun not trying to be too clever. The wooden frames come straight from the forest, the fabrics and fluffs are collected over time, donated from kind friends or old clothes that are disintegrating.

Did someone say hippy?

I was inspired by this Mapuche Loom originally. It gave me the idea to make the larger pieces on the loom as part of the presentation.
