Backstrap Explorations


Detail of Stripe Exploration

In 2010 Liz met several Bhutanese weavers who were anxious to re-establish their weaving activity after 18 years of living in refugee camps in Nepal.  In order to work with them, Liz had to learn about weaving on a backstrap loom.  This page shows some of her first pieces.
