Handweaver and Dyer



Handwoven silk kimonos are still the center of Pat’s work.  As a handweaver and dyer, the work shows a progression of complex layering of dyes, paints and most recently machine embroidery and beading.

Pat is always pushing the boundaries and looking for new ways to enhance the handwoven cloth.  Her work has been shown in World of Threads as well as the Carnegie Gallery in Dundas, Ontario and “Excellence in Fibre” at the New Bedford Art Museum in the US, Stitches Across Time, Museum of Dufferin, Insights Juried Show, Wellington county Museum.
