In the past few months I have been craving some other creative outlets. When you create for a living sometimes you become focused on what the customer wants and not what your soul wants to make. I am fortunate to live near the Textile Arts Center in Gowanus Brooklyn. In school I learned how to weave on a loom but that was years ago. Also it wasn't a tapestry loom.
It's so much fun to choose whatever yarn you want and create a painting with textures. It's a wonderful and relaxing way to experiment with color. Many people make these to hang on the wall. I am not sure yet what I will do with mine. It's still in the works.
If you like fiber arts, I definitely recommend taking one of these classes. Textile Arts also has a location in Manhattan.
