Bhakti Ziek

Weaver, artist and author Bhakti Ziek specializes in digital jacquard weaving, which merges the craft of weaving with digital technology. While studying textiles in university my professors would often reference Bhakti Ziek to discuss her amazing weaving skills and beautiful pieces. I continue to enjoy the thought provoking stories that emerge from the layers of images and text within each weaving. View Bhakti Ziek's creative process unfold on her blog and learn more about her weaving process with her book, The Woven Pixel: Designing for Jacquard and Dobby Looms Using Photoshop ©. Bhakti Ziek also offers private tutoring for weavers in her lovely Vermont studio (don't you love those windows?) and will be teaching a Woven Structures Class from June 1-June 18, 2010 at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Registration is now open!

Wow! So interesting. I have never seen anyone weave a jacquard like that at all - in fact didn't know it was possible! Thanks for sharing!
