Christopher McKelvy, the Kilted Weaver, is a Texas fiber artist specializing in hand weaving. He weaves in his home studio near San Antonio. He primarily weaves on a large 8-shaft floor loom, but also weaves on an antique two-shaft table loom and a large rigid heddle loom. Each piece is made with high quality materials and is 100% hand made. Weaving is a laborious process, but the results are unmistakable. Christopher will be teaching our Rigid Heddle Classes and offering 4-harnass classes in the future!
