We have a new member on Artizan Made! Linda and Dean Moran of Marble-T Design have been marbling fabric for over 20 years. If you have never seen this done, it's quite fascinating. Paints float on the surface of water and fabric or paper are laid on it and then pulled back up to pick up the design. The skill lies in creating a design on the floating paints first and pulling without damaging the effect. Ancient technique with contemporary applications!

Crucelina Chocho Opua's baskets are woven with a spiral technique, with a central cord serving as the soul. She uses the figures of animals, plants, and spirits to tell the story of the Wounaan people. These colorful baskets are used to collect fruit and crops as well as for special occasions and decorative purposes.

She learned the art from her mother and the designs have been passed down through generations. Due to the unique construction method used for werregue (palm fiber) baskets, it takes at least 30 days to complete each piece, the larger and more detailed baskets taking several months.

  • "I wish I could relate to fellow fiber artisans what I have witnessed since joining TAFA. This site, this concept, this group was born from the mind of one extraordinary visionary and has grown to become so much more under her watchful eye. I have been amended, improved, astounded and amazed by the energy and knowledge embodied in TAFA.

    There is NO other place online that will work harder to help expand your reach, enhance your online impact or improve your understanding of what to do and how to do it to improve your fiber-related business. I am proud to be a member AND a sponsor for TAFA and will continue long after other of my memberships is gone!"  Visit Cat's Shop
