About Me

132_3227

This blog began as a record of my 30 year handweaving life.  My main interest now is learning to paint and draw.     In 2003 I decided to go to art school,  something I had always wanted to do.  I took a  courses in drawing, painting, design and art history.     I am always learning as much as possible with travel to see and experience artworks firsthand,  taking workshops, reading and the most important part – practise.

I began handweaving in 1978.  I was  a self-taught weaver  and there are many excellent books available to learn from. I also enjoyed classes and workshops with some great teaches to enhance my studies.      I achieved Master Weaver status through the Guild of Canadian Weavers with an In-Depth-Study for the Master Weaver status about the weaving of Silk.   I started collecting a variety of silk yarns at the beginning of my studies with the intention of using it for the final study.     As a production weaver I wove  scarves in a variety of fibres and textures as well as mohair blankets for sale in many B.C. galleries.    I also produced  many other fine fabrics including  some for a feature film and many private commissions.     I also  collect postage stamps and study family genealogy.

    Hello Evelyn,

    You’re quite the talented girl ! From weaving to drawing and painting…then stamp collecting? I suppose that “dial-up” gives you some extra time in your days to explore the arts. ;-}

    Warm regards, Bruce and Susan
