Hempweavers is a project set up by two passionate people, a weaver Helena Loermans and a painter and art historian Marta Pokojowczyk. The authors are creating handwoven canvases with European hemp and linen yarn both natural and in colour. With respect for the basis of both crafts Hempweavers construct unique and composed textures which may interact with paints. This crosses between two disciplines; weaving and painting. Hempweavers studios are located in Odemira, Portugal and Wroclaw, Poland. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us by an email: helenaloermans@gmail.com or martapokojowczyk@gmail.com. Welcome and enjoy, Helena and Marta.
Instead of imprimatura...? - Little Masters. The collection of handwoven canvases from hemp and linen is available in our tictail shopHempweavers webshop - Little Masters.
