I am a hand weaver and a technical writer.
Writing is weaving with words.
Weaving is writing with threads.
For more than 12 years I have been weaving at home, in workshops, in weaving groups and lately at the ‘ambachtelijke weverij’. I finished the professional training in Rotterdam.
My favourites are mostly natural fibres - cotton, linnen, wool, paper. I also like to recycle and upcycle materials. My style is to the point, no-frills.
Weaving is fascinating. The options are endless.
What I really love about handwovens is that they show the hand of the weaver. They are unique pieces. A statement in today’s throwaway society.
