Textile Techniques In Metal

I just discovered www.weavecast.com. Here is an interesting interview with Arlene Fisch, an innovator of textile techniques with metal.

I found this casting about online to find a workshop. Not that I want to become a weaver (I think)
but I have a huge affinity for textiles, which is probably hereditary. My book collection includes titles on Central Asian, Indonesian textiles, Oriental and Tribal rugs. I'm fascinated by the cultural heritage past on through textile techniques and motifs, as much as by contemporary work.
The cross pollination of medium is where I find the most inspiration these days.
