As an artist, all my creative expression is founded upon my experiences.
Our recent journeys through Thailand, Laos and China have inspired a series of blankets I have hand woven using the most beautiful indie dyed wool from my collection.
Seeing so much weaving in the rural areas, and participating in my weaving class with @theweavingsisters inspired me to recommence weaving which I havent done since I was an adolescent… quite a long time ago!
I’m so enjoying my 48″ or 120cm Rigid Heddle Loom by @ashford_wheels_looms . I don’t have any podcasts playing. No Audio or visual programmes in the background. I am accompanied only by my thoughts and the sounds of nature outside my studio. It is such a lovely space to be in to weave meditatively.
Here are my first two blankets inspired by the fields along our journey.
