Project Description

Anne Gilmour

I love combining unusual and unexpected combinations of color, pattern, texture, technique & fiber- I was born predisposed to possibilities. Working in textiles allows me a perfect vehicle to lend form to a constant flow of ideas. That these ideas are allowed to live & breathe on a human body and become a personal statement in human life is a special privilege known only to those who invent wearables, and to me is an absolute joy. This is such a remarkable age of possibility- recently I finished a length of woolen cloth on my computer driven dobby loom, combining centuries old techniques with the latest technology, then took it to a group attending the local fiber festival to finish it with a traditional ‘Waulking’, complete with ancient Gaelic songs. The hands of many people blessed this cloth, and the belief is that this spirit & energy goes on to bless the finished garments and their eventual owners. This is a kind of ancient magic I can believe in, in this age of possibility!
