Spots and Blocks

Handwoven Textiles by Linda Healy are on display through May.

Linda has been honing her craft of hand weaving for almost 30 years, much of her own accord, but also through classes taught across New England and in Sweden. After retiring from the University of Maine's Darling Marine Center, she started her business Tidal Weaves in 2019. Using cotton, linen, hemp, wool, and mohair Linda weaves colorful decorative and functional art. Her inspiration comes from the natural world, her Swedish heritage, and historic Scandinavian weaving techniques.
