In Conversation with Belinda Rosee….
Weaving became part of my life in 2009, and, in the beginning, my desire to weave was born from a desire to fill my home with practical handwoven items. Things that I could hold, touch, use and enjoy on a daily basis.
No one warned me that weaving could take hold of your soul and fill your daily thoughts.
To be able to take strands of yarn and manipulate them to create a hard wearing floor rug, a beautiful table runner, functional tea towels, a softly draping shawl to provide warn neck hugs on cold Canberra days, or a gossamer transparency … truly inspirational.
It wasn’t until 2014 when weaving took over my life completely. I was given the tremendous opportunity of weaving cloth for Mr Geoffrey Rush and his portrayal of “Ra” in the movie “Gods of Egypt”. To see something that I had woven, on the big screen, well, words just can’t convey how humbling that experience was.
Weaving brings me joy and centres me. From the winding of the bobbins to the throwing of the shuttle, I touch every inch of yarn that goes into my creations. A part of me remains with each and every piece of woven cloth.
Simply put, I weave because I must, it is a part of me, and it gives me great joy to know that something I have woven can bring enjoyment to another person. – Belinda Rosee….
