my latest work

saori inspiration

 ‘saori’ is a style of weave originating in Japan that encourages free expression, improvisation, being ‘in the moment’ with no predesigned pattern or plan…
a natural ecru, pure wool warp
the piece emerges spontaneously
I reach instinctively for colours and threads
hand spun dyed with Norfolk woad or natural shades from Herdwick and Zwartbles sheep
irregular edges, slubs and floats add to the quiet beauty
