I design and make hand woven fabric in my studio in central Edinburgh on a 32 shaft computerised Louet Megado 130 Loom.
My wearable fabrics are exploring the rich Scottish landscape through repetitive pattern and texture employing treble cloth structures, which also look at the shrink qualities of the yarn types used to further enhance textured surface through the finishing processes.
