I spin, weave, dye and hand/machine knit. I love creating new designs and making interesting and unique items. Most of my work turns fleece into clothing/furnishings or creates quirky accessories. My background is as an academic so I love researching my crafts, testing things for myself and talking to others about what I have learned. Philosophically I am drawn to reusing and repurposing, creating things by manual manipulation (sometimes with the help of antique or vintage tools). I like to take my heritage crafts beyond their usual comfort zones. I love meeting other creative and local craftspeople.

In 2021 I am taking colour schemes from local photographs to dye fibres which complement my background of muted shades from native fleece. My workshop will be open for demonstrations (bookable). There is also a small gallery in which you can see examples of my experiments. You can buy items handmade by me, or unique preparations and designs to spin, weave or knit something yourself.
