Weaving is a centuries-old craft with a fascinating history, and one that continues to evolve. It is being revitalized today by designers, artists and modern craftspeople all over the world: from wall-hangings and carpets to art installations and technological tours-de-force.
Weaving – Contemporary Makers on the Loom presents a survey of twenty contemporary weavers, and I am so lucky to be one of them. The book includes images of our studios, work and inspiration.
Author Katie Treggiden’s essays explore the craft’s relationship with themes such as emancipation, migration and new technologies. The Bauhaus weaver Anni Albers is also discussed at length. She will be the focus of a major retrospective of her work this autumn at Tate Modern in London (October 2018–January 2019) and is a reference for everyone involved in textiles today.
