Talks

I love to share stories and images of my travels in India, and my delight in block print and embroidery, indigo and Islamic geometric design. I've been fortunate to meet and observe talented artisans, some specialising in traditional skills and some who are applying a contemporary approach and seeking out new worldwide markets.

I aim to capture the mood of a place in my images and of course to acquire interesting samples along the way.

We all enjoy a textile extravaganza so contact me if your group would be interested in an illustrated talk online, or in person where the event can be genuinely tactile.

This might be a ‘winding tiny skeins’ afternoon while listening to something less gruesome than my last book 😳
I’m in multi tasking mode but none of it is  photogenic so here’s a lovely new euphorbia in the garden instead.

I received a big fat package from afar, packed full of hand spun handwoven indigo dyed ‘’stuff’. 

I will show you more in a couple of months!😉
