This original, handwoven Macraweave textile artwork combines the graphic, structured and 3D nature of macrame with classic, textured hand-weaving. Beginning with a dressed loom, ‘Elude’ was designed and woven directly on the loom, with each strand of cotton macrame cord integrated by hand into the woven backing cloth between rows of traditional weaving. This labour-intense way of working showcases the craftsmanship required to combine 2 different craft disciplines to create a one-of-a-kind artwork.
This woven wall-hanging features cotton macrame cord in cream and white, which is offset by the textured wool and cotton blend of blues, cream and oranges. The colours and movement of the design connect visual references for water swirling and rippling and salmon eluding capture during the salmon migration in West Coast Canada.
With an overall size of 45cm x 96cm and featuring a mix solid cream and blue cotton with a blend of wool and cotton in orange, blue and cream, this contemporary artwork will look beautiful when hung simply on the wall above a desk or as a feature in a dining room.

This collection of Macraweave wall-hangings is the result of many years of research into knotting and macrame techniques. It began at college over 10 years ago where I was fascinated with connecting and linking woven fibre optic panels. During lockdown I refreshed some of my old skills, learned new ones and applied that knowledge with new materials to create a fresh, new body of artwork.
