Ivy as Macramé!

I love the idea of macramé, but buying string that has been shipped from overseas doesn't feel right to me in my art practice- for crafts, sure, but I knew I could do better. I love how this piece turned out. Ivy is NOT the same as macramé string, and it requires a gentle hand to work with it in this way. This practice is incredibly meditative once you get into the swing of things, however!

The Ivy I used in this piece was pulled with the support of Langley Environmental Partners in March 2022 in Aldergrove, BC.

Back in early 2022 I began a conversation with English ivy to let her teach me how to weave with her. As I am in the final stages of this initial research, I am spending more time weaving and less time outside sitting with and/or pulling Ivy. Stay tuned: I'm creating a course for how to create your own earth connected art practices, and will be teaching about how to do this yourself!
