SAN ANTONIO-- Thread by thread, weave by weave, owner of Lil Weavy Handwoven, Christine Hernandez, spends hours at her loom, creating works of art.
"It just really struck my interest and it was a medium that I had never worked with before, so it was just interesting to see how my thoughts could translate onto fiber,” Lil Weavy Handwoven, owner, Christine Hernandez said.
However, it’s not a skill that was handed down to Hernandez.
It started with her hunger to keep learning, even after college
"I was getting a little restless and I wanted to continue learning new things as I got older, and so I just picked up a catalog from the Southwest School of Art,” Hernandez said.
Hernandez quickly falling in love with the ancient art.
"Drawing has always been really cool to me, but it's been really awesome to be able to draw with thread," Hernandez said. "It was crazy to see all them come to life just by hitting different pedals and all different kinds of strings."
Her hobby became a business after social media helped peek the interest of those online.
"It's really cool to see my transition. Being able to make money off of something I really, really like to do," Hernandez said.
She keeps weaving relevant by incorporating it onto modern accessories like baseball hats.
"I hope that it goes everywhere. I hope to just spread weaving to a lot of people, because before I got into weaving I had no idea that it was such a beautiful art form", Hernandez said. "I would just like to keep weaving alive because we can't let it pass."
