Pandemic time is when many in the city began exploring their artistic side and took it up as a serious vocation. Sandhya Madhuri, an IT professional based out of Hyderabad, is one tapestry artist who dabbled in various art forms before settling on the tapestry.


Sandhya’s tapestry website, The Weaving Bird, is a one-stop shop where she sells exquisite hand-woven tapestries that she makes by herself. A self-taught tapestry artist, Sandhya tried her hand at various art forms such as photography, music, and pottery, before she accidentally stumbled upon tapestry weaving about three years ago.


The budding artist shares that her interest in the art form kicked off when she got interested in the samples posted on Pinterest. She says the weaves captivated her, and she decided to take it up herself. So, after months of research, exploration, and watching lots of tutorials online, Sandhya started making tapestries.


Sandhya’s inspiration comes from Baya Weaver Bird which she learned about in school. The bird intricately weaves its nest, which also happens to be the inspiration behind the name of her website.


However, it was not easy going for her during the initial days. Sourcing resources was one huge issue, she says, adding that she went through several tapestry artists’ profiles globally, read through many blogs, and made a lot of trial and error before she finally made her first piece of tapestry.


Sandhya says there are no rules in art. She weaves whatever her mood tells her, and for the dovel used to hang these tapestries, Sandhya uses anything from a paintbrush to a wooden spatula. This makes it therapeutic, she reveals.


Presently, Sandhya is also conducting online workshops to tell people the ease with which they can start this art form. Though she started with an expensive loom, one life hack that Sandhya learned is to use an old photo frame for the purpose. As for the fabric, she says one can use rope and old sarees cut into strips, cotton twine, or anything suitable.
