Arra Textiles - Seasons Of The Sea Winter Storm 1.1 in progress 2.jpg

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.

Collect Open 2022

The New Artisan  Collection

A Celebration Of Colour, Craft And Design

Collect Open 2022

I'm delighted to finally be able to let you all know that my tapestry collection "Seasons Of The Sea" has been selected for Collect Open 2022!

Collect is one of the world’s most influential fairs focusing on contemporary craft and design and living artists.

My project is rooted in sustainability and will tell a story of three ocean seasons: Oceanic, Winter Storm and Upwelling. I’ve been working on the collection for the past 18 months through both lockdowns and shielding and have handspun then plant dyed the majority of the yarns involved. Take a sneak peek at the process so far in the video!

It is a huge opportunity (I still can't quite believe I'll be going!) and it will probably be the biggest event of my career but will also be a bit of a stretch to self fund.

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.
