Laurie Duxbury weaves in her studio in Northern Albemarle County. Fascinated by colors and their interaction, she blends multi-hued yarns at her loom to create clothing and home accessories. She first became interested in weaving and textile production when, as a child, she visited historic sites in her native Virginia. As she learned the craft of weaving, her interest evolved into a passion for expressing her own creativity through the combination of colorful threads and traditional patterns. Though she works in traditional techniques her pieces reflect the elegance of contemporary design. Laurie has studied in Sweden and throughout the United States. In addition to weaving for shows and commissions, she teaches workshops and offers one-on-one instruction.
