Art in The Park

Norman Veech bought his first loom at a flea market 20 years ago. He learned to weave from his wife as a way to pass time during chemotherapy, fell in love with the art, and has not looked back. He has since bought more looms, trained fellow weaver Bob Hill, and has produced many beautiful rugs, throws, blankets, bowls, and more at his studio, Bluff Creek Weavers. He weaves for enjoyment using a foot-powered loom and recycled materials. While it takes him one-and-one-half days to "warp" the loom, once prepared he can weave about three rugs a day. For the majority of his work he recycles upholstery selvedge, long strips of material cut off when furniture is made, to make rugs. Rugs are not all that Norman and Bob weave. Norman has a Kentucky source for soft alpaca wool. Norman uses leftover alpaca fiber that has been wrapped around a cord and weaves it into afghans, saddle blankets, and throws. Bluff Creek Weavers will be at Art in The Park on the lawn at The Woodford Inn on Friday, May 27, from 6 to 9 p.m., and Saturday, May 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
