I am a handwoven textile designer living in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, who as a member of the Oxfordshire Craft Guild exhibits regularly in Oxfordshire.
I will be exhibiting and demonstrating on one of my looms, with the potter, Harriet Coleridge at her studio in Ewelme.
My scarves and shawls are one-off accessories in a mixture of yarns, principally silk, cashmere and lambswool which I am able to source from two suppliers who buy ends of lines from mills.
I use several handweaving techniques, including one called woven shibori which produces permanent pleats in the cloth to create movement of colour fron one side of the cloth to the other.
A vibrant colour palette and texture is used to give a lustrous and iridescent finish.
I also handweave linen teatowels, linen is the best yarn for teatowels.
Ewelme is a historic and pretty village well known for its fifteenth century church and school, and its connection with Geoffrey Chaucer.
