About me

y name is Beki Gregory and I am a finalist at Loughborough University, specialising in Woven Textiles. My personal flare for weave is enthused by fusing unusual yarns and colour blends, both of which have helped to build my collections. I love to create vibrant and exciting fabrics and this inspiration develops from drawing and primary sourced photographs.
