Just a cute baby modelling a weave 🤷🏻♀️🌈 he loves these wall hangings so much I’m wondering if I can somehow make him a big mat like this with all the textures that he can pull and play with , just how to make it baby safe . All the texture and bright colours is great for sensory play I think that’s why he’s so fascinated with them 👶
Is 2018 the year of the basket? The NYTimes Style Magazine @tmagazine has published a brilliant piece on how basketry, one of the most ancient crafts is being adapted, rethought and remade in the 21st century! ⠀
Great insights from @deborahneedleman and the always inspiring @annemarieosullivanbaskets ⠀

My biggest piece to date is finished! This is the first piece I’ve completed on my big adjustable loom from @rovingtextiles and I’m really happy with it. Scaling up my work from the lap loom was more of an adjustment than I thought. I had started and taken apart a couple of different pieces before this one, so in some ways this feels like a monumental accomplishment. With every tapestry I make I am learning new things and improving my skills, and it feels good. I also attached a stick this way for the first time, and I love it so much it makes me want to go back and add driftwood to the rest of my finished pieces. 💜
Seriously drooling over this amazing Don Freedman that I spotted on Etsy. The shop’s name is Go Seek, but I couldn’t find them on insta to tag them! I have just been staring at the photos for hours now... who else dreams about one day owning one? 😍
Texture will always have my heart. This fluffy roving is the material that initially drew me to this art form. I’d never seen anything like it before, it’s crazy gorgeous and you can do just so much with it. 😍😍😍
Swipe to see the painting by @winkwinkstudio that initially inspired this piece. The colors seriously make me swoon...

Spending this dreary day slow cooking chicken noodle soup+sketching new ideas in the studio. I’m working on a collection of tapestries for a local gallery in Austin and I’m pretty excited about it 😍 I picked up this @worthwhilepaper sketchbook from @slownorth boutique of curated artisan goods. I also found this neat woven basket by @amshastudio, which is the perfect vessel to hold my lil weaving tools. We will be hosting a Weaving Workshop March 10th and everyone gets to take home a soy candle plus 10% off any purchase from the shop. There are still spots available if you want to learn a new craft this Spring! Link in my profile for more deets ☝🏼#weaverfever
And a new warp for a variation in a different set of colors is almost ready to go. I don’t have a wall space that I can comfortably move around a warping board in, so I often park it on my weaving bench against the loom. I’ve only accidentally knocked it off almost ruining my warp twice... 😉
