We still weave the radiant wall panels that have been the image associated with the Findhorn Weaving Studio since its opening in 1971, most famous the Sunrise Panel. We also weave and knit a range of scarves, towels, jewellery and other unique pieces, as well as commissions. Sharing and learning weaving and knitting are an important part of the Studio's work, and the Findhorn Weaving Studio offers beginner's classes for adults and children, and possibilities for advanced weavers to continue to learn, join us, or arrange apprenticeships.

My studio is a treasure trove of assorted fabrics, lace and braiding, some of which are found or recycled. These I use to create wall hangings, cushions, patchwork quilts or bags.
I am a hand spinner, and use my yarns to create everything from purses to large works for the wall.
I also make detailed collages incorporating recycled and found objects and my passion for colour has led me to create mixed media works for walls which often combine acrylic paints with fabrics, fibres and gold leaf.
