We are so pleased to have Weaving Hand join TAFA as a member! Located in Brooklyn, New York (USA), they are a vibrant organization which embraces the cultural roots of weaving around the world. They have built relationships with groups of weavers in many countries, offer workshops on traditional techniques such as Ikat Weaving, Guatemalan Backstrap Weaving and Tibetan Carpet Weaving. Encouraging self-expression and awareness, Weaving Hand also has a healing approach to their work, working with children and adults who suffer from mental, emotional and physical disabilities.
We originally connected on Tumblr. Weaving Hand has an active social media presence and their photo stream there, on Facebook and their other sites show off a space that is happy and so full of life! Make sure to connect with them wherever you are!
Weaving Hand also has looms and other weaving supplies for sale, so make sure to look into that if you are a weaver in need of new tools. If you are in the Brooklyn area, make sure to pay them a visit and even get involved. They depend heavily on volunteers and this is one case where giving feels much more like receiving!
