48 : Tien Chiu on her about her growth into weaving, enriching the weaving community, how mathematics and technology influence her work.
This week we are speaking with Tien Chiu.
Tien is a textile artist, a teacher, and a writer. She has achieved many awards and achievements with her weaving work, including such honors as her handwoven wedding dress as part of the permanent collection at the American Textile History Museum and her Kodachrome jacket being featured on the cover of Handwoven magazine. In her studio she is primarily a weaver, dyer, and couture seamstress, producing artistic garments, accessories and wall hangings.
She has written many articles for Handwoven and Complex Weavers Journal. She has also written a fabulous book, titled Master Your Craft: Strategies for Designing, Making and Selling Artisan Work. This book was a huge help for me when I started weaving as a full time career and is definitely recommended!
Her blog is an amazing resource in design inspiration, exploration, and problem solving complex weave structures. I have been following her work and her blog since I graduated from college, finding endless motivation through her writings.
We hope you enjoy our conversation as we talk with her about her growth into weaving, how she wants to help enrich the weaving community, and some insight on how mathematics and technology influence her work as a weaver and teacher.
