The Border Tart
I'm Lindsay Roberts. Colour, texture and pattern are a source of endless fascination and exploring them in textile and paper art is what I enjoy most.

I studied Textile Design in the Scottish Borders, then learned to spin and incorporated my yarns in woven home furnishings for some years. 

More recently I enjoyed a funded residency in India, returning with a determination to explore indigo dyeing and block printing and simple kantha stitching.

This led me to investigate Islamic geometric design and I have since combined several techniques in a collection of cushions and hangings.

What I do

I dye yarn and fibre with indigo. You can read more about indigo here.
I produce a range of natural fibre yarns to knit, crochet or weave with. These incorporate British wools, merino, linen, silk, alpaca and yak. I dye silk hankies, threads, wool locks, prefelt and carded fibre batts usually featuring British wool breeds. 

When I am not dyeing or at a textile fair I can be found with needles and threads, running retreats with the multi-talented Sarah Hazell.

In 2018 we have launched finding time, enabling you to immerse yourself in gentle creativity for a few days. Learn more HERE!
