Lenore at the Loom |
Woven shawls with an artistic flair
Lenore's introduction to weaving was in the summer of 2003 at a church annual retreat at Hanover College in southern Indiana. She registered for the triangular weaving class in which prayer shawls were woven. Actually it was an answer to her prayers, as she found the medium in which she could express her dormant design abilities. She was enthralled!
Her enthusiasm did not diminish. She purchased her first
loom in December on a trip through Missouri on the way to Oklahoma for her brother’s wedding. However, She had to wait until Christmas to set it up! She had two small shawls woven before the end of the year. She has been weaving ever since, with at least one project in progress at any given time.
She loves combining different colors, fibers with various weave structures. There are so many possibilities! Each new shawl is an adventure!
Lenore's first public appearance with her weaving was at the opening of the Decatur Area Arts Council in August of 2004. Since then, her shawls have been displayed in shops as well as the Spurlock Museum in Champaign, IL. Many were displayed and sold at the
"Arts in Central Park"
in Decatur, IL.
Lenore has participated in several art and fiber shows in Illinois and Michigan.
Lenore was active in the Champaign-Urbana Spinners and Weavers Guild and is presently a member of the Weavers Guild of Kalamazoo and the Jackson Handweavers and Spinners Guild.
This creative outlet coupled with Lenore's education background enables her to present the "how's , " why's", and "why not's" of continuous strand weaving in an organized, relaxed and fun atmosphere.
Lenore's studio is now located in Southern Michigan
Workshops are available for groups or individuals
