How can form be created from a flat woven surface? Woven Forms brings the craft of weaving into the third dimension. It shows the development of fully-woven sculptural objects created on a Jacquard loom. These forms were achieved by embedding form-giving mechanisms such as multi-layering techniques and heat-reactive shrinking yarn. This means no sewing was needed to create these woven objects. This work demonstrates an approach to creating form entirely through weaving.
