My sister first introduced me to weaving one afternoon in her home. I was fascinated that I could make something so functional using just my hands and found grasses. The meditative act of foraging the fibres , caring for them whilst they dry and then weaving them into a funtional item is so humbling and rewarding. My ethos is: what has come from the earth, returns to the earth once discarded, leaving no footprint 🌏
Formally trained in the soft furnishing industry , I still run a busy workroom , making bespoke soft furnishings. I was a regular creative contributor to the Womens Weekly handmade magazine and have run many workshops. I am self taught in the art of weaving and love to whip up a batch of soap.
I prefer to use ony found or foraged fibres for weaving but also like to play with hemp and linen twine incorporating crochet into my art pieces. My soaps contain cold Pressed virgin olive oil, coconut and pure plant based essential oils. .
