Festival: 2017

I am inspired to create by the colours of a morning, a seasonal change in the weather, the layers of pattern in a pebble, or the way sunlight filters through the tree canopy in woods. In the day, I knit wearable, landscape inspired garments. My design process is intuitive, working from drawings or photographs. I make individual garments using traditional yarn techniques and applied embroidery. 
At night, I felt wool pictures that tell stories of real or imagined secret lives. I am an experienced workshop leader for all ages in drawing, handspinning and dyeing wool, feltmaking and pottery.
