Rachel long investigates past traditions, present concerns, and future potentials of a contemporary weave practitioner. Since completion of a Bachelor of Design with honors majoring in textile design at Massey University, Rachel has been developing her weave practice at her studio in Wellington, New Zealand.

Through the textile processes weave and natural dye textile artifacts are created that demonstrate an intimate understanding of the relationship between maker, materials,

and object.
