Swimming and Loom Weaving

Posted by Olivia Mansveld on

Fashion works created at the Centre for Craft Nova Scotia summer residency program from June-August 2019.

 Integral to these garments' construction is the consideration that they are far more than just coverage and adornment. Building cloth from cones of thread is a labour of perseverance and meditation, with time to reflect on human's relationship to the much faster, mechanized methods of clothing production. Building a garment in this very slow way challenges the often forgotten disposable elements of our current material economy, and explores the intricacies of cloth's very construction. 

Many thanks to the Centre for Craft Nova Scotia for the support in this project.
