Exhibition: One Warp, Infinite Designs – an exploration of block design and multishaft weaving
The Handweavers Studio
2 to 26 September 2017, The Handweavers Studio, London N7
A chance to find out more about my One Warp, Infinite Designs project and see some of the many different patterns that I have woven using this method. There will be a selection of earlier designs and a chance to preview some of my Autumn 2017 collection. Work will feature my lambswool throws but will also follow the story of how this particular project evolved from a personal exploration of dukagang weave structure found in antique Scandinavian household textiles, to a small independent textile design and handweaving business specialising in ‘handwoven in Britain’ lambswool goods.

Festival of Weaving in Åmosen Nature Reserve
3- 5 June 2017, Kattrup Estate, Jyderup, West Zealand, Denmark
I shall be teaching on the subject of “One warp, infinite designs” at this year’s Festival of Weaving organised by Weavers in West Zealand and The Weavers’ House, working in collaboration with West Zealand Museum, Holbæk Museums Association, Kalundborg Museums Association, Odsherreds Art Museum & the Friends of Malergården (The Painters’ Farm), Åmosen Nature Reserve and the Support Fund for Åmosen Nature Reserve.
The aim of the Festival of Weaving is to pass on knowledge and experiences, helping to preserve and protect crafts, cultural heritage, nature and cultural life in West Zealand – returning to a forgotten time, seeking to make ancient knowledge relevant and vivid for people today.
