About me
I am a Weaver, primarily offering skills in Fabric Design & Development consultancy . My Craft consists of knowledge & experience using a variety of looms, from Tapestry to digital Jacquard looms. My Practice consists of exercising what Locality means to me and what Material & Process means to you. My interests lie within the research, process, craft of design and the endless curiosity that is weave. Projects document how I build concepts to produce samples. To view my full portfolio & samples or simply talk weave, feel free to send me a message.
