Theresa O'Brien

"I am primarily a self taught weaver. My first woven pieces were tapestries woven on a small frame loom. Since then, my craft has led me to weave functional textiles on a multi-harness loom. I dye with natural dyes and am currently exploring indigo dyeing. I feel that I am connected, through the craft of weaving, to all of the weavers that came before me. They were skilled craftspeople and artists around the world who created clothing, rugs, shelters, nets, baskets and exquisite textiles. Modern weavers are working to retain the techniques and skills of the past and to rejuvenate those that have been lost to industrialization. This is my inspiration."
