Now, more than ever, we’re looking for some comfort, and if that comfort comes in the literal form of a woven wall hanging, all the better (we’ve never been keen on metaphorical comfort anyhow). Maryanne Moodie’s breaths comfort and chic into the living room.
Inspired by the intricacies of vintage textiles, traditional costuming, and modern art, as well as the natural world, her work is both sophisticated and organic. But what really stands out is her unexpected color combinations, making the overall design pack a punch.
Working between Melbourne and Brooklyn, NY, Moodie divides her time between designing and creating woven wall hangings, developing weaving kits, and teaching sold-out workshops across the world. “Weaving is something that I am passionate about and get great pleasure from, and so I am able to use my expertise in education to share this passion with others,” she shared in an interview with Diary of a Smart Chick. “The love and inspiration and energy that I get from my students is the most important part in moving this craft forward and creating newness.”
Her work has also gained a cult following of sorts, amassing more than 120k followers on Instagram, and featured in publications like New York Magazine, Anthology, and O Magazine. Thankfully, you can also purchase her woven pieces on Etsy. Moodie also offers DIY kits so you can weave a wall hanging yourself (God knows you have the time).
