Join us for March’s Art Walk with Kathleen Pfundt of Homeshore Handwovens!
With a passion for fiber arts which began as a child, Kathleen decided to study weaving at the age of 21. She began at Lily Bohlin’s School of Weaving in Victoria and ten years later went on to attend Haywood Technical College in North Carolina, learning from Catherine Ellis, of Handwoven Shibori fame.
Over the years she has fit weaving in between seasonal commercial fishing in Alaska, day jobs, and whenever she could find time while raising her children. She has been selling her work at the Bellingham Farmer’s Market for the last two years, enjoying getting to know our community better through this vibrant hub of activity.
Kathleen was inspired to segue into rag weaving after discovering Ragfinery, where she is able to find low cost, reuseable materials of almost unlimited variety. She loves working with the myriad colors and color combinations of printed fabrics. Sometimes her creative juices are summoned by just one little scrap!
Kathleen weaves colorful rugs, bags, tablerunners, and place mats for everyday use, bringing warmth and vibrancy into people’s homes. We hope you can join us to admire her collection on the First Friday in March.
