Open Studio

Monique van Nieuwland’s Open Studio is open at 10:00am – 4:00pm on Saturday, 19 November at 41 Scrivener Street, O’Connor, ACT.

Monique van Nieuwland learned to weave in the Netherlands and bought her first loom in the late 70s while she was working on a commission weaving fabrics for curtains and tablecloths. Van Nieuwland uses a computerized Jacquard loom, which is the latest state-of-the-art weave technology. She is passionate about weaving, keeping it current as an innovative form of expression. Visitors can expect a range of works available for purchase, and a weaving demonstration on her equipment which ranges from simple band looms, floor loom, computer dobby loom to a high tech computer Jacquard loom.
