If Walls Could Talk, They’d Ask For Wall Hangings

I’ve had a miniature wooden lasercut “loom” sitting in a box for over a year that I’d bought with the intention of finally learning some weaving. I’d tried my hand at creating a small wall hanging at the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, and (like every other fiber art I’ve attempted) LOVED it. Unfortunately, that woven miniature also sits in a box with other randoms, and in my quest to start making again, weaving just hasn’t been a priority amidst throwing clay on the wheel and textile surface design endeavors. But not for long! I am so inspired lately to try everything, and I am committing to digging up my loom and creating one of the amazing pieces below!

Totally kidding. But I am very inspired by the artwork of weavers I follow on Instagram and the lovely woven wall hangings in people’s homes. I think I fell out of my chair after seeing the piece in Erica Reitman‘s home, whom she’s named Sheila. However there is a world of amazing weavings, a few of which I’ve gathered below.
