Liz Williamson is a weaver based in Sydney. Creating woven structures has been a fascination, passion and creative practice for her since taking a weaving course in the late 1970s. She is highly accomplished as a weaver, maker, artist, researcher and designer who has her own studio practice alongside her position at UNSW Art & Design and her role advising artisan groups in India.
Working from her home studio, Liz integrates weaving into her day-to-day life mixing designing, weaving, home, garden and travel. Textiles consume her life and she gives generously of her time, experience and expertise.
Making is in my fingers and when I’m at the loom, I’m aware of the expertise and precision required to interlace warp with weft to create an envisioned structure.
For Obsessed: Compelled to make Liz Williamson’s work is three hoop-shaped woven pieces called Shadow Loops.
