Charles Blanchard weaves a life of color and texture

Posted: Thursday, November 01, 2007

Charles Hadley Blanchard was born to a mathemetician mother and a lawyer father, who hoped he would follow in their footsteps, but he chose a different path. After graduating high school and traveling to Africa with the Peace Corps, Blanchard discovered his love for the textures and colors of hand-woven fabrics. His journey of learning and practicing how to weave took him from an ashram in Wisconsin to India and Nepal.

Now living in Sullivan County, Blanchard continues to weave every day. “My inspiration comes from living in a spiritual place, allowing grace, and working with what is shown to me. I suppose, put simply, it comes from within – all the while admitting and thanking the powers that be,” he says.

To see Blanchard’s creations, visit – taken from the name of the township where he resided in Pennsylvania – or call 845-252-7289.
