With just over four weeks to go before Collect Open 2022 I'm very excited to finally be able to start sharing some more details of the work I'll be exhibiting.
I'll be starting a series of weekly blog posts on my website from the 26th January, each one coving a different stage of the design process. From sourcing and processing the raw fleece to plant dyes and weaving all the way through to framing the artworks with locally felled timber. During Collect Open I'll be showing seven unique textile artworks inspired by Scottish coastlines, each one blending ancient tapestry techniques with contemporary woven design.
With costs upwards of £3800, I’m hoping to raise around a third of the total to go towards my place at Collect Open and to share part of the journey and collection with you all.
If you’d like to help (and a huge thank you to everyone who already has!) the link is below to donate but a share, like or comment on social media is just as helpful!
