Weaving and Natural DYE Process
Each scarf or shawl is handwoven in my studio in Portland, OR. After ten years in the Cathedral Park Studio building under the St. Johns bridge I moved my studio into a new home with space for a studio in 2021. Each scarf focuses on naturally dyed fibers. I predominantly weave with wool, although I also make some cotton scarves for those adverse to wool.
Weaving with ReUsed and Repurposed Materials
I also enjoy weaving with reused and repurposed materials. The two images below are samples I have been creating using reused materials, handspun yarn and warp gaps in the weaving warp. There are many interesting weaving pieces to be created with reused materials like curling ribbon and left over fiber from spinning.
