I dye and weave textiles by hand; rugs, wall-hangings, bags, cloth; in sumptuous colours and textures. Inspired by the natural world and the built environment

I am a hand-weaver and textile artist. I use a variety of yarns, both natural and man-made fibres, to produce household textiles, rugs, bags, scarves and cloth. My inspiration is very varied, from winter landscape in the Peak District to the modern Sheffield cityscape, but usually colour is the starting point. I am also interested in ways of creating texture in cloth.

As well as weaving, I make and use woollen felt, stitch and dye. I am exploring the transformation of hand-woven cloth using loom-controlled stitch resist prior to dyeing.

STUDIO: Demonstrations of spinning and weaving on various types of equipment; variety of textile samples and finished articles on view.
