 Ingrid Boesel:
 a Short Biography

My goal is to achieve an effect of fluidity on both the wall and on the body.

Clothing and accessories are a special interest of mine. I love fine luxury and natural yarns. Gradations of colours and interaction of weave structure emphasizes an intricate interplay of colour and pattern. My work has been getting finer and more formal with more emphasis on surface pattern. The weaving is done on a computer assisted dobby loom with 32 shafts. A very versatile tool that allows almost infinite exploration of woven structures, is one of my joys. I dye silk or wool with synthetic dyes, using a variety of techniques, including ikat.

I have been teaching weaving since 1967, and was a production weaver for about 5 years. Kumihimo is a new fiber addiction that I have begun to indulge. My husband and I have developed and market a computer weaving program called Fiberworks PCW.

I have completed my Master Weaver with the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners. I am a bookaholic and a sample exchange junkie. Mostly I just love to weave, but spend an inordinate amount of time with the computer!!
