Format

Summary
A Weaverly Path: The Tapestry Life of Silvia Heyden offers an intimate, visually stunning portrait of Swiss-born tapestry weaver Silvia Heyden and captures the inner dialogue and meditations of an extraordinary artist in the moments of creation. The film follows Heyden during a year of weaving and reflection. Heyden creates works inspired by the Eno River in Durham, North Carolina and shares how nature, music, her Bauhaus influences, and her life experiences anchor and inform her weaving. Born in Basel, Switzerland in 1927 and trained at the School of the Arts in Zurich, Heyden was a fixture of the Durham and North Carolina art communities for many years and was well known and respected in the network of tapestry weavers across the US and around the world. Her tapestries hang on the walls of collectors and institutions throughout the world, yet few have had an opportunity to witness the physical intimacy between Silvia and her loom. Heyden died peacefully at sunset on March 2, 2015 at the age of eighty-eight..
