Emma McDermott’s work is inspired by birds and their habitats. The damage caused by the jewellery industry to their environments, encouraged her to use all recycled or natural materials in her work.
Using organic materials wool, silk, linen and pure cotton Esther Ward combines traditional textile techniques with contemporary design to create both functional and decorative textiles. Whilst her shop sells small items of clothing and textile bowls, larger pieces such as quilts and rugs are also occasionally offered for sale.
