If you haven't had the good fortune to spot one of racheljOK's dreamy tapestries in person, you'll be sure to see one in your Pinterest or Etsy feeds soon. Self-taught Melbourne creative Rachel Johnstone has been busy honing her craft & weaving up a storm since taking on the loom 2 years ago!
Inspired by Melbourne ex-pat & cult fiber craftslady Maryanne Moodie, Rachel initially started by teaching herself the basics. Experimenting with a cornucopia of techniques & colour palettes, Rachel has steadily developed a diverse range of bespoke weavings...ranging from free-form organic compositions to statements of bold, geometric colour. Smitten with fiber-art (& highly skilled), Rachel has quickly became a stalwart of the local market scene & launched her own successful Etsy store. Go girl!
In keeping with Melbourne bonhomie, Rachel also hosts sweet little workshops for others keen to learn! You can keep up to date here.
