I enjoy using my loom to its full advantage, I have a 16 shaft floor loom which means I can weave fabric a meter wide and approx 13 meters on the loom at a time. I design mainly for homeware, perfecting a a lightweight and soft cloth that works well for my range of lampshades and cushions and a hardwearing durable cloth for my range of footstools. I like to be able to show you can buy locally made items for the home which have been completely handmade and I can show the traceability of my materials.
Being able to continually work on a tradition craft which I was lucky enough to stumble upon and enjoy. I am able to turn cones of wool into bespoke luxury fabric.
Handwoven Textile Designer, I design and weave small batches of bespoke fabric for the home. Working with lambswool and rug wool to create soft durable fabrics.
