Welcome to my website. I am a weaver and designer-maker who has always had a passion for textiles. I love fabrics with a luxurious feel to them, fabrics which are colourful and which drape well. I design and hand weave my own fabrics on a 24 shaft compu-dobby loom. Each fabric is designed to be suitable for its use whether it is to be worn as a scarf, made into a handbag or made into a garment. There are some photos of my loom on the weaving process page and feedback on the customer compliments page.
I have been weaving and selling my work for over 10 years. I started with a small range of textured scarves which came in many different colourways and these were then joined by some very decorative twill type patterns. Now, the range is quite diverse: single and double weave fabrics, decorative twills, stripes, flat fabrics and 3D textures. The yarns I use are mainly natural fibres including cotton, wool and linen, some of which are hand dyed either before or after weaving.
I live and work in Poole, Dorset, exhibiting and selling my work through local craft galleries and occasional craft shows. I hope you enjoy exploring this site.
My work is available from this website and also at occasional craft shows.
I will be at the Dorset Arts & Crafts Association annual exhibition at the Purbeck School in Wareham from 31st July to 4th August 2020.
