I have been a weaver for almost 40 years. Though classically trained in the arts since childhood, when I found weaving, I found the purrrrrrfect performance craft for me…one that demanded both creativity and physical abilities. The weaving world is so large, that I could ‘play’ endlessly… and so I’m still at it. After retiring from teaching weaving, I downsized to 9 floor looms and each has a name. Even as I state I am a weaver, I have a variety of products and techniques that I create ~ I am a fiber artist, I crochet, and do an art form I have named “Woven Imagery”, I sew Raggy Cat Pin Cushions and I have a labor of love in my Fabric Flower Pins. What inspires me every day is the beautiful place where I live upon this earth…the high mountain desert, the sky, the colors, the harsh weather, the gentle mornings and the absolute quiet.

 

Statement

My business, Cat Brysch Creations Studio, has been in operation since 1980 and is continuing to go strong since I retired from teaching weaving in 2007. Now I devote my time to producing award-winning scarves, stoles, blankets, handwoven yardage and fiber art. I served as consultant to museums, schools and the private sector on the preservation, restoration and/or repair of looms from ancient to new. I assisted in the documentation of woven historic textiles in the Betty Maddux Textile Complex and of Navajo rugs in the Anthropology Department of the Witte Museum in San Antonio, Texas.
After a year as a volunteer and a year as Artist in Residence, I began a 10 year journey as Assistant in the upstairs Fibers Studio of the then-named Southwest Craft Center. I served as Children’s Art Programs Coordinator for the then-named Southwest Craft Center, was Installation Chair for events put on by “Cafe” in San Antonio, an environmentally focused arts group and was founder of The Creative Connection of Magdalena, NM, presenting small art festivals.
I have been featured in “Handmade”, “Handwoven”, “FiberArts”, “Fiesta” and “San Antonio” Magazines as well as numerous newspaper articles. I have written an article for “Handwoven Magazine” and “Complex Weavers Journal”. I have won numerous awards for my woven garments, fabrics and fiber art pieces, have shown in galleries throughout Texas and New Mexico and my art now lives in public and private collections from here in my Village to internationally.

    For Cat B.
    Thank you for the time you spent with me in your studio yesterday! The tour was very helpful as I have not seen such production weaving. I also enjoyed the working explanation and view of your looms. I do wish I had felt brave enough to try the weaving as you suggested. You are so generous! I shall work on a freer rhythm and look at your video’s online.

    Today I am in ABQ and searching out Rio Grande weaving.

    Thank you again.
    Best, laurie jones
