A thread through her veins.
Jurate is happily exploring the world of weaving. Between her two studios she maintains three large floor looms and a fleet of little ones.
Jurate was raised in the vibrant Lithuanian- Canadian community of Toronto where she apprenticed with a professional weaver. Days at summer camp were spent exploring the world of small loom weaving.
Weaving is an important part of Lithuanian society, now and in the past. Flax grown in the fields was turned into linen yarn, then to be woven into the clothing and household goods needed in the home.
As someone who loves to always be learning, Jurate is continuously exploring new avenues in weaving.
From crinkled fabrics with permanent crevasses, to rugs for any space in the home, she is having fun surrounding herself in colour and texture.
Stay tuned to find out where her explorations take her next.
