Woven Reflections with Andrew Rizzo
In this episode of Be Creative Now, weaver Andrew Rizzo shares his woven reflections on the craft of loom work. Shot in the comfort of a yurt which serves as his weaving studio, Rizzo discusses how he came to be a weaver, and shares a view of world history and self-analysis rooted in the metaphors, stories and songs connected to textile arts.
Over the din of a four-bar Gibson floor loom, Rizzo shares an international and interpersonal perspective while also explaining the nuts and bolts of how to “do the dance”, weaving astrological birth charts, what to do when you make a mistake, and how a beginner can connect to their local community of weavers to get into the age-old art form.
