TYRA SHACKLEFORD
TEXTILES

I have a passion for mastering and preserving the techniques my ancestors used to create textiles, and using these ancient techniques to create modern pieces. I wish to inspire others to learn about these old methods. My mission is to share my knowledge with the world through my art and my teachings.

By pushing boundaries of traditional finger weaving and creating contemporary shapes and forms, I bring textile techniques of my ancestors into modern day. Every piece I create is made entirely by hand, without the use of a loom.
