4.9.12 MEET MY NEW FRIEND


Wow, I have just delved into the work of New Friends. I have been quite interested in making a loom and doing some modern weaving for a while now and these girls work is the closest I've seen to what I have been visualising. Can you imagine how completely amazing any of these would look in the right space?

Alexandra and Kelly first met online sharing a love of textiles and began weaving separately before meeting and becoming New Friends. I reckon their use of colour is knockout and the quirky organic yet graphic outcome just makes me want to own them and stare all day. That settles it I need to get that loom made. I remember weaving as a child though what don't I remember making as a child...

  1. Weaving is the bestest. I have a stash of my mum's old weaving books and love looking at the designs. Now, take that camera of yours and head into Sturt and go and listen to the banter of the weaving room. Click. Click. Click. It'll be the best morning ever.
