Vanessa Cunningham

Vanessa Cunningham

Medium: Fibre Arts
Location: Squamish, BC

Cunningham is a third generation weaver living in Horseshoe Bay. She graduated from Capilano University in North Vancouver in 2007 with a diploma in Textile Arts. She was a Circle Craft scholarship recipient upon her graduation.

Her work is an exploration of colour and texture through a traditional tabby weaving technique produced on her Oma's Glimakra Loom and then post-felted to achieve natural tailoring. Each piece is named and detailed with scrabble letters as a permanent signature.

Vanessa saves every thrum or scrap from the weaving of her wraps and scarves; she then spins the woollen thrums into yarn for weaving, and sews the non-wool thrums into Eleganza scarves.
