I'll have some small wearable pieces in this upcoming show at the Silk Weaving Studio in Vancouver. This exhibition is timed to coincide with the Textile Society of America conference which will be in town. Hope you can swing by if you're in the area!
Silk Weaving Studio Exhibits
In a departure from wearables, the Silk Weaving Studio is having this show of textiles for the home. I'm putting the finishing touches on several 3-D pleated pieces before they are shipped off next week. The opening is on May 4th from 6-8 pm. Hope you can make it.
A few of my recent pleated pieces will be included in a show at The Silk Weaving Studio from Sept 11-24. The exhibit is called "Selected Innovations: The Inspiring Legacy of Junichi Arai". The show will also feature Nuno textiles from the Ann Sutton Collection. There will be lots of really interesting textiles in this show -- both old and new -- so don't miss it if you're in the area.
I've been working on a few new pieces for an exhibit at the Silk Weaving Studio in Vancouver. The show is entitled "Material+Culture" and features work inspired by the beautiful Sanjo Silk yarns. The scarves are woven with a fine and luscious silk/wool blend with floats of heavier silk/wool which I cut after washing and fulling to create little eyelashes one one side of the scarves. On the other side, little twill squares appear where the floats are tied down.
I've also recently become quite addicted to crochet. Who knew! I love the repetitive hand movements and the fact that the crocheted piece can grow organically and spontaneously. The pieces for "Material+Culture" are made with white paper yarn and a stiff vine yarn.
