There are so many amazing wall hangings around at the moment. I love that this craft is enjoying a resurgence as I've always been partial to a bit of fibre art - the weirder the better for me. I caught up with rising star of the scene Maryanne Moodie to find out more about her work.
How and when did you start weaving? About three years ago. I was searching for a craft to pursue and when I found weaving, something inside me just turned on. I was hooked! What materials do you use and how long does each piece take? I use all types of yarn and textiles in my work. I use lots of vintage yarn as well as small batch, hand spun and hand dyed wool. I also use handmade beads sometimes, as well as things I find at the hardware store. What do you enjoy most about the process? I enjoy working closely with my clients to ensure I create a piece that is wholly them. It will be a piece that has the privilege of hanging in their personal private spaces. I want to create a piece that will bring good vibrations into their homes and their lives. Where do you sell? I sell only via commission at the moment. I feel so lucky that I can enjoy the process in an individual way that is different for each client. Do you have any plans for the future? Yes, I am setting up weaving classes in NYC and Australia and I am commissioning a carpenter to help me put beginners weaving kits together. I am also filming an online weaving course that I hope to have live in April/ May. All very exciting!
