Cassandra Smith is the designer and hand-weaver of richly textured, sustainable textiles at her textile design studio Cassandra Sabo and the owner/educator at The Oxford Weaving Studio. Her time is divided between designing and hand-weaving interior products for private clients and design professionals worldwide whilst teaching weaving, running workshops and managing OWS from her studio in Jericho.
Originally from Montreal, Cassandra studied Engineering followed by a degree in Textile Design from Central Saint Martins in 2011. In 2012 she was awarded the Cockpit Arts/ Clothworker’s award launching her studio that same year followed by The Oxford Weaving Studio in 2018.
