The Art of Making a Tapestry

I was trained a designer, I´ve worked as a fashion designer for two decades. Weaving was a big part of my education, I was weaving all my fabrics, I used for my collections, on huge floor looms. I look back at the years from 1994-1997 as some of the best years of my life. I LOVED my school of Design.

I found this beautiful film on Youtube, it´s the story of `The Art of Making a Tapestry, just wanted to share it with you..

Craftsmanship

During the Wool & Yarn Fair in North Yorkshire, I had the pleasure to visit The Graduate Showcase, in association with Embroiderer´s Guild. It´s always a pleasure and great inspiration for an (old) textile designer to see, how young designers are developing today – I noticed that craftsmanship and handmade skills are still crucial if you want to stand out from the crowd – that brought a smile to my face 🙂
