Monique van Nieuwland
I'm an artist/weaver/designer and an accredited professional member (APM) of CraftACT. I teach weaving at tertiary and at community interest level. My studio is filled with many types of loom: back strap, inkle band, countermarch treadle, computer dobby and a state-of-the-art computer operated Jacquard loom. I weave to create conceptual work for exhibition but also love the challenge of answering commission briefs and creating practical items. My conceptual work focusses on the environment and our human existence within it.
