The book by Mirja Wark about the he intricate belt weaving of the Wayuu Indians from the Guajira
Weaving creates a sense of peace and order as well as useful results.
In these hectic times full of stress and digitalisation this is quite a special experience.
I am Mirja Wark and I have been weaving all my life. Many years of travelling the globe have yielded a treasure trove of fabrics and techniques which I would now like to share with others in lectures, classes and exhibitions.
Living in different places around the world has resulted in a large collection of hand-woven textiles, as well as a knowledge of various and often surprisingly simple techniques.
I regularly publish articles about these experiences in the magazine Handwerken Zonder Grenzen
I regularly give lectures combined with exhibitions.
This way I promote the art and craft of weaving and bring weaving closer to people.
Small local museums and groups of weavers often contact me because of my passion for textiles.
