This colour palette was waaaay out of my comfort zone, but this quarantine period calls out for courage and bravery - and weird colour palettes 🌸 . . . Happy to see that I absolutely LOVE the finished tapestry. How about you? Do you like unconventional colour palettes?

It all starts with a hoop and a lasher.

🌈✨First rainbow for the year! What a joy it was to slow down & weave again. 😊 #stayhome P.s. I’ve recruited a hand model (aka my partner 🤣) to hold my weaves up as we have fresh paint in our house & I can’t bear to put a nail into that crisp paint yet.🙈

Linen and cotton table mats. A present for a friend who asked for the red and grey colours. It is an 8 shaft Stitched Double Cloth circle again. I have varied the threading plan to create different shapes at the sides. I think table mats should have a lot of weave interest, so that when conversation drags at a dinner party there is a lot of to look at on the mats! #tablemats #interiordesign #interiortextiles #linen #cotton #red #grey #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #weaversoftheworld #bespoke #bespoketextiles #designermaker #handwoven #patterndesign #unique

I’m definitely not used to spending so much time at home so I’m finding it difficult to let go of my to do list and just take some time out. Working on this weave is helping though, I can’t help but find these greens calming 💚 Anyone else spending some time out being creative this Easter? Either way, wishing you all a happy Easter! 🐣 #easterproject #greenisgood #ontheloom

Some yummy things came off my loom today! They’re so different it’s hard to believe they’re from the same warp! 😁 #babywearing #babywrap #wovenwrap #handwoven #handwovenwrap #handwovenbabywrap #weaver #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #merinowool #milkwoolfibre

She should have been asleep hours ago. But I find her at my loom. I should be irritated but instead I run to get my phone, some scenes just have to be captured.

It’s been... months, Alice. We dropped a ball or two along the way. But there are reasons. A cross-country move, leaving old friends, finding new friends and leaving them too, leaving a dream and a home, every emotion, the Pacific Ocean, ice skates, redwoods, and the inevitable wild ride with her. Now a pandemic and economic chaos with wild fires ahead. And where do we go from here and with whom, and what shall we be? . . . 🧵 ✂️ 🧶 ✏️ 📖 📷 🌈 ✨

Experimenting with different ways of placing fiber on canvas. Was thinking of how acrylic is used to paint a canvas and what that translates to in my fiber art practice. Using acrylic yarn to “paint” the details. A little embroidery and weaving to add volume to this flat surface. 🧶⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #fiberart #fibreart #textileart #embroideryart #contemporaryfiber #weaving #weaveweird #ihavethisthingwithtextiles #textileoftheday #fiberartist #mixedmediaart #artchicago #contemporaryfiberart #chicagoart #chicagoartist #handwoven #embroidery #textiledesign #contemporaryweaving #embroiderywork #yarnlover #weaversofinstagram #embroiderydesign #weavingart #fiberlove #art #fiberartistsofinstagram #weaversofig #contemporarypainting #cathyquintero

Hey y’all! So I received a package in the mail last week and inside was this little beauty from @wildfolklumber! I ordered this for my upcoming market May 9 (which has now been postponed until October 23 btw) and it’s absolutely perfect. - As far as the market goes I’m relieved for the date change. I haven’t felt too much like creating lately and haven’t been able to go to the store to get materials to create my displays with. - I hope everyone is safe and healthy and trying to stay sane throughout all of this. Sending lots of love your way!

This is an experiment that I tried about a month ago now, to see if I could do weaving in an embroidery hoop. And it came out ok! I deliberately kept it simple to see what the different textures would come out like. I've seen many far superior circular weavings in terms of composition and materials, but I just used what I could find at home. It strikes me now that this is something that many of you would be able to try at home yourself. All you need is an embroidery hoop, some cotton string or cotton yarn (it mustn't be stretchy) and yarn to weave your design with - the chunkier the better in my opinion (I also used some ribbon!). You can find instructions for how to warp your hoop on @theweavingloom website. If you have a go, let me know - I'd love to see what you make!

Took a dip into some fun, ocean vibes when I was originally aiming to climb into mountain vibes. Just another fun example of how a piece really grows into its own. Excited to finish this lady and send her off to my dear friend in CA! --Ry // este telar es muy del mar a pesar de que al inicio aspiraba a algo más de las montañas. Otro ejemplo de como una obra se desarrolla a algo propio y único. Ahora a poner los últimos toques para que pueda enviarla a una querida amiga en California! --Ry #wovenart #woventapestry #wallart #weavings #weaver #fiberart #wovenwallart #handwoven #weaverfever #fiberart_community #createmakeshare #weaveweird #weaversofinstagram #weaversoftheworld #wovendesign #weaversofig #telar #telaresdecorativos #telaresartesanales #madeinMN #quarantineart #stayathome #springcleaning #quarantinecreating #crearencuarentena #artedecuarentena #quedateencasa #oceanvibes

I’ve struggled with making time to weave during the past month, because my creativity has been bouncing in a million directions: sewing face masks, writing letters, cleaning, creating online curriculum, connecting with friends and family, more sewing, and doing home projects. it has been hard for me to create space for making because I feel compelled to make a meaningful use of my time. . Am I favoring these creative outlets because their outcomes are known and stable? Because they make me feel productive? . What happens when I sit down at the loom and create a piece not knowing what it will look like in the end? A piece of art that has no formal “purpose”? . These two books are among the piles on my coffee table right now, and have been inspiring me to re-think the barriers that have been getting in the way of making lately. . I’ll post some excerpts in my stories- the Beyond Craft: The Art of Fabric is a beloved favorite of mine 🖤

Happy Thursday! Here's alittle dark weaver humour and weaver ponderings. It is a fact that all throughout history when things go sideways for people with wars or plagues, weaving was brought into the homes and people had to make their household textiles. When supply chains stopped, people still needed clothes, towels and linens. People would generally stop weaving in their homes after the event passed but that return to those home crafts is something to honor. It was not seen as art but utilitarian, something that was looked down on at times. Maybe because of the familial memories of being forced to weave during unhappy times.. Regardless, weaving and sitting at a loom is a sacred space for me and is a part of our shared histories. Sending each of you love like threads of fibre, together we are woven into this shared experience of humanity. #ramblingsofaweaver #wovencommunityandtextiles #adventuresintextiles #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #textilelove #handwoven #sacredspace #wovenwithlove #returntotheloom #togetherweweave #somuchgratitude #somuchlove #notjustahobby #woven #stayhomeandweave

9 more vibrant saturated colour me nebula packs up for grabs and still 15%off with GOTTABUY20 These nebula packs are laced with silk, corridale, Alpaca, Polwarth tops, Mulberry silk prefelt, rich vibrant wool curls and firestar each pack is individually dyed and takes about an hour plus hand painting each pack to do. I am a small batch independent dyer of wool and plant fibres and my colours are to kick ass! It's taken me 7 years to learn this process and I'm only one of the few in the UK who as an individual does this technique. My processes are unique to me and heck does it take hours to make these..? Oh yes! However My purpose is to keep practicing intuitive dyeing methods so that you get that oh my golly gum drop moments! If you like rich saturated colourways these 9 packs will be in the shop tomorrow and you just better wait as my rich vibrant dyed rainbow, nebula llama mini packs and roving is on its way too Link in bio, xx #virtualfibremarketplace #britishwool #spinningwool #spinnersofinstagram #feltingwork #knittingaddict #knittersofinstagram #artyarn #handspunyarn #madeintheuk #indiedyersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #vibrantdyedwool #yarncandy #etsyseller #dyedroving #yarncandy #yarnhoarder #woolover #woolhookery #weaversofig

Weaving Inspiration: check out this cool setup by @ljgaylord42. She setup her loom and then added stripes of card weaving to make fabric for a garment. I think this technique would also be amazing for hand towels. How else would you use this? Trying out something new? Make sure to tag us and I'll share it. ______ #seattleweaversguild #seattleweaves #weaversofinstagram #weaverfever #weaversofig #weavers #warpandweft #cardweaving #weavinginspiration #SWGonmyloom

This is a little 16 shaft computerised Harris Loom that I’ve been fixing up over the past couple of weeks. I’ve had it for a few years after saving it from a skip but never quite got around to looking at it properly before now. As I can’t get up to the studio regularly at the moment, it seemed to be a good time to get it sorted so that I have a working loom at home! I’ve shared a few photos in my stories of how I’m getting on, all that’s left to do now is to sort out the circuit board. The sticker inside says the last time it was tested was in February 1985 (before I was born!) but hopefully there won’t be too much to do, just replacing a couple of old parts.

This week has whizzed by and I had to remind myself that it is Thursday! We are working at creating a new routine here at home and I feel like I'm always asking what day it is! Anyone else have this issue...???

Morning walks are always filled with interesting shots. Have a look 👀 at these beauties of a Garden Spider🕷 - we have named her Charlotte(not original, but hey, its lockdown🙃) She stays in the the center of the web🕸, usually facing down, waiting for insects to become trapped in it. The silk in a zigzag pattern near the center of the web is called a stabilimentum. #molaposafari #21lockdownSA #instagram_sa #southafrica #ilovelimpopo❤️❤️❤️

Finished this beauty yesterday 🤩 It needs hanging and trimming, but can I find my dowel ? Nope Can I find my little saw to cut the dowel ? Nope I mean, how do you even misplace these kind of items ?🤷‍♀️😂 (Obviously I am blaming hubby and his shed tidy up ) Anyways, it is going to be another sunny day so reading and sipping coffee in the garden is where you will find me 😃 Enjoy the sunshine you lovely lot! #wovenwallart #wovenwallhanging #wovenart #wallhanging #wallhangingdecor #wallhangings #weaversofinstagram #weavers #weaversofig #creative #becreative #fibreart

I've been using my new custom packaging (tissue paper and tape) from @noissueco for a few weeks now, and I still love it SO much. ⁣ ⁣ I've always had an appreciation for great packaging, so it feels really satisfying putting together my orders with these beautiful supplies. ⁣ ⁣ A new YouTube video went out today, and is a quick and easy tutorial on how to do a hemstitch at the top of your weaving!⁣

Chain one, then chain too? Ready to start thinking about #jstonlineguild year two sample one #asymmetry , albeit with a bit of personal touch along the way. Hopefully 10 yards will afford me some room to play as we go! Also hopefully I’ll get the loom dressed tomorrow.... #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #floorloomweaving #floorloom #toikaloom #toikaeevaloom #makethebestofshelterinplace #safesthomenotstuckathome #janestaffordonlineguild #studiochrysopoeia #chrysopoeia #warpchain #dressingtheloom

I finished my first circular weave today! It’s totally off center, totally imperfect, and I don’t love the colors together, but it was a great learning experience! 🤣

My current WFH setup: using our coat hanger at the front door to wind my warp for a #tidaltowel weave. 😂 Next step, drag my loom out to the front window so I can weave in the sunlight.
