I am delighted to have been awarded two prizes in the Bradford Textile Society Design Competition.
Here is a short description of the fabrics I entered:
My fabrics are fine merino jacquard fashion fabrics woven in Yorkshire. I am currently exploring different weave structures combined with digital imagery to create pattern woven into the cloth, giving a sense of depth. My designs incorporate large imagery, which is possible to weave using ‘state of the art’ Jacquard machinery. British mastercraft skills in weaving and finishing, combined with fine merino wool, give the fabric a light smooth handle.
