Welcome, to the Dark Side of the loom! Created by my friend, weaver Milly Formby, Dark Side of the Loom is home to one seriously spooky menagerie of hand woven 'Milly Monsters'. 

Taught to knit, sew and crochet by her mother as a child, Milly developed a love for textiles that would see her go on to major in Tapestry as part of her fine art's degree. For the last 10 years, Milly has been working as a professional weaver for the Victorian Tapestry Workshopcollaborating with artists to interpret their work into large scale tapestries.

Milly also has a great love of animals and the natural world and is currently doing a zoology major at the University of Melbourne. Animals greatly influence her art as does Japanese anime, graphic illustration and comics.

Milly will be holding an exhibition of her work at The Mill Provedore & Gallery in Launceston, Tasmania from next month, so if you're local, why not take a trip to the Dark Side of the Looooooom!
