by Sarah Resnick

Hi everyone, Sarah here, back at it hosting an episode of the Weave Podcast. These are hard and unsettling times we are living in now, and I hope that this podcast is providing some comfort and peacefulness for you. 

This week on the podcast, I’m talking to Thoma Ewen. Thoma is a tapestry weaver in Quebec, Canada whose work focuses on a lifelong love of the natural environment. She is also the founder of Moon Rain, a center for tapestry weaving and teaching, and a place for creative retreat and renewal. Comment below to keep the conversation going!

Thoma thank you so much! What a fascinating, informative and heart warming interview this was! Your work is exceptional. Your sense of community is just so inspiring! Keep doing what you do so naturally and so creatively…bringing people together to create a better earth, and of course creating your own fantastic tapestries!
