The Locust Loom

The Locust Loom is a one-woman business out of Denton, Texas. I am a fiber artist, enthusiastic about combining unique colors, textures and patterns to create one-of-a-kind weavings and wall-hangings. I have always been a tactile person and enjoy creating fiber art that is satisfying to touch and pleasing to the eye. I use various size lap looms to weave, mostly abstract, wall decor. My projects are well planned, but I allow spontaneity and creativity to enhance the design of each individual project. I find that my customers genuinely appreciate the opportunity to take home something that is one-of-a-kind. I am very passionate about recycling and sustainability, so I only source my fibers from the SCRAP Denton Creative Reuse store. Since the store is all donation based, I am able to find many vintage and/or foreign fibers to use in my work. This gives my weavings more of a unique edge and is good for the environment! Through workshops and event I have connected with countless kind and generous human beings. I continue to make weavings, not only because it brings me joy, but because it gives me the opportunity to be part of a wonderful community of makers.
