A Weaverly Path – Silvia Heyden


Selvedge magazine popped this up on my Facebook newsfeed today.  Silvia Heyden is a Swiss-born tapestry weaver who is inspired for her designs by the Eno River in Durham, North Carolina where she now lives.  A Weaverly Path is a film by Kenny Dalsheimer showing the artist during a year of weaving and reflection.  I would love to see the whole film, but here is a link to a trailer.

I have Googled her work briefly and love the natural shapes and colours that she uses in these pieces.  Inspirational.
