Studio

The studio is almost ready for the public.  I'm surrounded by countless artists and artisans, and I can feel the creative energy all around me. The studio is in an industrial building that was originally an RCA Victor factory.  You can read all about the building's history here, Edifice RCA

The lighting is just the BEST.  From morning to evening, I'm bathed in the most wonderful natural light.  Even on cloudy days, the light in my studio is always just right.

Here are just a few pictures so you can see for your self.

What is Interstitial Spaces?

Interstitial Spaces is this:

and this:

and these:

Woven by James on a four shaft table loom
Woven by Erin on an Asford Knitters Loom
Woven by Molly Ann on a Schacht Cricket.
and much more.

These three samples were woven by my wonderful non-weaving volunteers, who agreed to take my Welcome to Weaving Workshop. Yes, they had no previous weaving experience and yes, they wove (completed) these samples in the workshop.  I am so pleased!

Welcome

Welcome to Interstitial Spaces. 

How do you start a new blog? I honestly don't know where to begin, so I'll just jump right in.
