Lynn S. Williams

Lynn Williams has always had a passion for working with her hands and creating things. Over time, this interest led her to explore hand-weaving and hand-spinning, as well as dyeing and various forms of surface design. After many years of using yarn to create fabric and functional/wearable items, Lynn learned to make un-spun silk fiber, which can be cut and sewn like traditional cloth or sculpted into three-dimensional forms. Lynn is currently exploring two types of work inspired by the natural world and traditional textiles. One is a type of fabric mosaic, created with large sheets of paper, which are then cut into small units and embellished with machine stitching. The other involves using single sheets of paper to create images by block printing and hand stitching
