As a craftivist and zero-waste textile and fibre artist, the words earth and loom together conjure up unlimited possibilities and conversations about environmental issues. Looms are used to weave; the earth is the single common thread that every person shares. Therefore, Earth Looms have the potential to bring different people together to build a strong foundation based on what we have in common. Our common threads strengthen our ability to listen and understand each other’s differences. It’s time to turn off twenty-four-hour news, go outside, and create strong, personal, human bonds of understanding and compassion.
