Woven Word Tapestries by Noreen Crone-Findlay

I am working on a series of woven tapestries and mixed media woven works that have prayers, poems and blessings woven into them.

The light hasn’t been good enough to photograph my latest piece: ‘Thank You’, so I have made a short video showing her and a few other ‘Woven Word’ pieces in the series.

I am working on several new pieces at once, and when they are done, I’ll post videos and photos of them, too.

Woven Women- And All Shall Be Well

One of my most favorite prayers is Dame Julian of Norwich’s …

“And All Shall Be Well, and All Shall Be Well, and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well….”

This prayer is a mantra that I repeat to myself through thick and thin, through the darkest nights and hardest moments-   we all have them, and they are transformed into a wellspring of compassion, but, oh my, how incredibly challenging it can be at times to navigate them.

Thank you, Dame Julian, for these words to live by…..

I love weaving words, and have done many woven homages to Dame Julian.

But, this is the first time I have woven her prayer in tapestry-

She is approximately 36 inches tall.

I wove the central tapestry panel on my Mirrix 8 inch tapestry loom at 6 epi.

The side and back panels were woven on my 4 harness floor loom at 12 epi.

On her face, there are bits of sea glass, fragments of pottery and seashells, as well as driftwood.
