Meghan Bogden Shimek is a weaver, fiber artist, and tarot reader living and working in Oakland, California. She creates stunning large-scale wall hangings and sculptural objects from wool roving. Meghan’s work has been exhibited throughout the US and internationally.
Meghan is also a teacher, which is where I met her! I was lucky to get to learn from Meghan at the Weaving Kind Makerie retreat last October in Colorado. As someone who primarily weaves with thin yarn on a floor loom, it was refreshing to learn at a completely different scale using her techniques of off-loom weaving with roving. I was also inspired by the stories Meghan shared about how she found her way to weaving and how she’s making her way in the world as an artist.
