I am a handwoven textile designer living in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, but I exhibit regularly in Oxfordshire and am a member of the Oxfordshire Craft Guild.
I will be exhibiting and demonstrating on one of my looms, with the potter Harriet Coleridge and other artists at her studio in Ewelme.
My scarves and shawls are one-off accessories in silk, cashmere, wool and linen in a vibrant colour palette to give a lustrous and iridescent finish. I use colour and texture rather than complex weave structures to achieve this. Former travels in South-east Asia are one of my sources of inspiration.
One of my designs, woven shibori, a Japanese technique, is used to produce permanent pleats in the fabric which create movement of colour from one side of the the scarf to the other.
During lockdown, I started weaving linen teatowels as a diversion from the horrors of the pandemic.
Ewelme is an historic Oxfordshire village, well known for its fifteenth century church and its connection with Geoffrey Chaucer.
