Cathy at loom

"Weaving is about managing color and color combinations, the way each color plays with another. Integrating other woven textiles into my weaving gives them new life, inspiring my own yarn selection, shape, and final design techniques. This makes every piece one-of-a-kind and truly unique."


Cathy Detrick has a B.A. from U.E.C.U. / Antioch and a Masters Degree in Art History from the University of Massachusetts. She has studied Fiber Arts extensively in college and taught art and weaving for twenty years.

Today she is fully devoted to creating her own hand woven art, using looms from Sweden and Denmark. She has traveled widely and collected textiles from China, Japan, Laos, Italy, Ireland, Germany and Guatemala.

Her work is a collection of wearable art incorporating her own hand weavings from luxury fibers such as silk, cashmere, chenille, ribbon and metallic silver and gold, often highlighting intricately woven textiles, many of them antique, from her textile collection.
