hand spinner and weaver
I have always been interested in textiles and began felting before moving onto spinning and weaving more recently. I weave on both a rigid heddle loom and larger 8 shaft floor loom.
Weaving is a traditional skill and is often called a ‘slowcraft’ as the process to go from yarn to a fabric requires a number of steps. Each step takes time and care with every thread passing through the hand of the weaver. To me there is something quite magical about weaving with endless possible variations in the process culminating in unique fabrics.
