Agnes Hauptli

Guest Artist on the 2024 Arts Trail

I am a self taught weaver that first started playing on a rigid heddle loom in 1992 as a hobby.

I have been in love with this craft ever since and became a passionate Fibreholic!

Over the years the big living room in my 140 year old Victorian type house filled itself with one loom after the next, slowly but surely the weaving became more dominant in my life which eventually led to a career change.

Today, I am working and teaching from the purpose built workshop on a wonderful property in the Far North of New Zealand and weave mostly scarves, shawls, household items, baby blankets and baby wraps as well as exhibition and experimental pieces on several different looms. I love to work with very fine silk threads and like to create pieces that show complex patterns and beautiful iridescence.
