In Morocco; sitting on an earthen floor weaving with other women… those memories are the framework for the blankets I’m weaving five years later. We travel the world in our nearly one hundred year old car, and my experiences continue to live through my expression of my artworks. I’ve recently immersed myself in weaving beautiful blankets and this one inspired by our journeys around Morocco has been so enjoyable to weave; as I recall the landscape, colours and connections I made whilst there. You can view more of my artisan handwoven blankets here by clicking my Skeinydipping Website.
