Divorce Papers

In 2013, amidst the energy of loss and separation and surrounded by boxes of divorce documents, I did what I love most, weaving. This time allowed for the healing memories of what worked and what didn’t work in that relationship to unfold, which allowed for me to release any dark feelings.

Process: Read documents, separate into category, shred documents. Twist 8 strands by 8 strands to make my own yarn and weave it into the open shed as if weaving a tapestry.
