Hello to everyone I met at Yarndale over the September 27/28 weekend! Thank you for stopping by the stall and snapping up my indigo and handspun yarns. If ever there was a kick to get my online shop up and running, that was it...
This is a 'before' pic. After was rather less tidy.
I am in love with colour, texture and pattern. They are an intrinsic part of
my life; I focus on them everywhere.
I’ve been ‘making things’ since childhood, hands always busy with salvaged
scraps. Using simple tools - needles, scissors, carders, spinning wheel - I
make my own intricate colour stories with fibres and fabrics, incorporating new
techniques as I learn them and revelling in the process of experimentation.
Handwork is central to my practice. I incorporate diverse textile and
book-making techniques, dependent on the quantity and type of materials
Textiles and paper are my favourite natural raw materials and ideas for
combining them abound, ever more so since visiting India in 2012/2013...
