About

Hi,
My name is Glynis  and I am a Weaver living in South Africa.

My weaving journey started many years ago and although the road has not always been easy,  I have been blessed with wonderful teachers and generous mentors who have encouraged and supported me all the way. Now it is my turn to do the same for you.....

A few years ago my husband and I, together with our two sons left Johannesburg and moved to the 'Lowveld'. For those of you who aren't familiar with the word, the 'Lowveld' (pronounced low-felt) is synonymous with the South African wilderness and wild-life. You will find that this page will be peppered with references to bugs and birds, reptiles and animals and all manner of curiosities that cross my path on an almost daily basis - they are as much a part of my make-up as my weaving and I draw much inspiration from my surroundings.

Patreon will provide me with an extended base for sharing my passion for our wonderful craft, and your monthly pledge will make it possible for me to devote more time and materials to developing studies and designs that will help you to improve your weaving

I have now been teaching weaving for well over ten years, and I love every minute of it. I am committed to helping new weavers and encouraging established ones. I am likewise dedicated to sharing my knowledge with anyone who is interested in the craft, whether  a practical weaver, or just fascinated by textiles and would like to explore further.

I will be sharing my weaving (and other) experiences with you on this page. Encouraging you to extend your weaving practices, whether  on a Rigid Heddle or a harness loom, and providing stimulation in the form of glimpses into my working life, loom bound triumphs - and disasters -  and lots of weaving anecdotes that so often spring to mind as I sit at my work.

There will be project sheets, calculations, basic info, not so basic info, advice, terminology, explorations and all manner of information to keep you moving forward on your own personal weaving journey.

The time has definitely come for me to extend my  platform and this is the way I'm going to do it.  I hope that you will join me on this new phase of my weaving journey and enjoy the ride!
