In the Studio with Woven Womyn

A series of photographs from the Woven Womyn studio. The artist belongs to a lineage of crafters, sewers, knitters, crocheters and musicians. She grew up a maker, and it was when she was expecting her first child that her hands found weaving. She described it in this way; “it was as if I just woke up one day and was a weaver.”

With an ethnic background of Irish, Kenyan, Choctaw Native American, German, and French her pieces are deeply rooted in heritage and authenticity.in-the-studio-byCaraBrostrom_0017.jpg

maker feature – studio habeas corpus

This maker shoot brought me to Studio Habeas Corpus, a textile workshop specializing in (among other things) 18th century stays, locally sourced labor and materials, slow production techniques, and reuse and repairability research.

The studio’s manifesto is a call to the handmade, the local, and the artisanal experience. Likewise, I wanted these images to feel tactile, intimate, and natural.
