Weaving in Colorado

Weaving in the mountains of Colorado was incredible. I made two journeys there. The first time I wove on a walking loom and created a tapestry that had three-dimensional qualities. My second journey involved working on a Mirrix loom, which was a totally different concept. On this loom I worked with my Zapotec instructors from Teotilan, Mexico and created a colorful, playful gekko. The hand-spun wool was naturally dyed with plants and insects. The reds were created by using crushed cochineal bugs found on cactus.
