Tapestry is Having a Moment Thanks to Maryanne Moodie

Studio MM, Brooklyn


Brooklyn based Fiber artist, Maryanne Moodie is who I think of whenever I think of tapestry. Now, tapestry is having a moment, and it probably has Maryanne Moodie to thank for that.

Maryanne is an Australian native, splitting her time between Melbourne and Brooklyn, where Studio MM is based. I am sure it’s one heck of a schedule – and a lot of travel with a family – but if you follow Maryanne Moodie on Instagram you know she makes it look lovely!   Her feed is full of chunky weaves and some behind the scenes studio shots – all very colorful and geometric and calming to scroll through. Definitely give her a follow if you haven’t already!


Beyond an almost-picture-perfect Instagram, Studio MM produces commissioned weavings for residential and commercial spaces. Who wouldn’t want to see some of these lush, bright wall hangings in their space? Each piece is custom designed and handmade, so no two are exactly alike!

Maryanne Moodie is also the author of a book, On the Loom: A Modern Weaver’s Guide. Inside she shares some wisdom, tips and how-to so you can get started if DIY is more your style. Weaving is incredibly soothing and meditative – trust me, I have been weaving in some capacity for over a decade. Another super cool thing that Studio MM offers are online tutorials – so if you’re a visual learner, but can’t make it to any of Maryanne’s in-person workshops – the next one is in Laos, Cambodia though, just saying – you can watch her online tutorials. She offers tutorials on a number of topics from Fiber Sculpture to Weaving Basics.


In Studio MM’s online store you can find beautiful beginner sets with a frame loom and a variety of fibers to play around with. So, if you feel like the winter is coming quickly and you’re looking for a calming, warm, indoor activity, weaving might just be the thing you’re looking for and Maryanne Moodie can be your muse!
