Weaver Agnes Hauptli

In one of her blog posts today, Meg Nakagawa linked to New Zealand weaver Agnes Hauptli. Go here to see her web page. Here you will find a brief bio. On this page as well is a link to her gallery. When I saw her gallery all I could say was "wow"!

I wanted to see if I could learn more about her. What I did find was an earlier website of hers. Here is a website which shows her weaving from 2001 to 2005. What a transformation has taken place since then! What a lot of work must have taken place to cause such amazing growth.

Hi Peg, I enjoyed seeing this weavers work. I have to forget I'm trying to weave myself otherwise I feel overcome by anxiety - how does one get from being a beginner to having a distinct "voice" and style? Lots of work I guess!!

Nevertheless I do love Agnes's work and I'd certainly adore having one of those shawls or scarves in my wardrobe!
