Welcome to the Travelling Loom

Welcome to my new blog series, The Travelling Loom. Every few weeks, The Travelling Loom (one of my Mini Weaving Kits) will be heading off to a different fibre artist to document their experience with create a mini weaving. The idea of this blog is to offer the readers a look into the creative experiences of various fibre artists using the same loom and tools and to provide inspiration for emerging weavers. Some blog posts may be a tutorial to create a similar weaving, or they may be an insight into the artists process of weaving and use of materials and their inspirations. 

If you are a fibre artist and would like to have a visit from the travelling loom, or you'd like to nominate one of your favourite fibre artists, leave a comment below ❤️

The process is fascinating to follow as each pod changes and evolves in shape and colour.

Like Stacie, being creative benefits my mental health and often puts my anxiety at ease. I’ve not felt so many emotions all at one time reading her article, “Visible Mending and Weaving with Stacie Sims” and I really can’t wait for you to have a read.

Kristin Carter is certainly a master of creating intricate pictures in her cheerful woven artworks. She uses a mixture of techniques including tracing images, using a backing image behind her loom and using embroidery to really bring her woven pictures to life. I would consider her style to be a classic yet playful modern take on traditional tapestry weaving. In this blog post, Kristin takes you through her inspiration and skills used to create a tiny work of art.
