Meet the artist

My name is Marie, a textile artist and weaving instructor based near Leiden, Netherlands. Growing up in France in a family of craft enthusiasts, I developed a deep appreciation for handmade creations. As I explored various crafts, it was weaving that truly captured my heart and became my true calling. Experimenting with various crafts helped me develop a keen sense of color and design, which proved invaluable in my journey as a weaver and dyer. 

Playing with different techniques and materials, I discovered my passion for unique colors to create one-of-a-kind pieces. In search of unique colors, I explored diverse dyeing techniques and materials, discovering the captivating beauty and versatility of natural dyes, and embracing eco-friendly fibers in my artistic creations, broadening my artistic vision and deepening my bond with nature. 

In 2021, I took a leap and decided to share my passion for handwoven textiles, giving birth to Marie Handwovens. Through my shop, I offer hand-dyed and handwoven creations that reflect my passion for craftsmanship, creativity, and the beauty of natural materials. Additionally, I offer workshops where I share my passion for weaving and provide a supportive environment for exploration and growth, helping individuals find their own style and spark their creativity.

Thank you for being a part of my artistic community. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my love for handwoven textiles with you.
