Woven Women-Butterfly Prayer

I am weaving a series that I am calling: ” Woven Women”. They are mixed media fiber art pieces that are a celebration of the Feminine Divine.

I showed the Butterfly Prayer Woven Woman piece in a how to video today, so I figured that I should show a few more photos of her.

So, here she is:

The Woven Women are all woven on many different small looms.

I wove Butterfly Prayer Woven Woman on inkle looms, tablets, a 4 harness Structo loom (8 inches wide), and a tapestry loom.

In the photo above, you can see how I gathered the upper curved section by pulling up warp strands to ruffle the weaving.

The lower curved sections were drawn up in more graduated curves to make a flatter arc and not a ruffle.

And, here’s the Butterfly at her heart and in her prayer…

Butterfly Prayer Woven Woman is my prayer for wellness for all the creatures of this beautiful planet, no matter how small or large.
