Textile Craft Workshops


I design and weave unique accessories and clothing, working on my sixteen shaft electronic dobby loom in my home studio in Bolton, in England’s sunny North West. Using natural fibres such as cotton, wool and linen in a broad palette of colours, I am inspired by the sights, textures and structures of the natural and manmade environment. I make it my aim to use sustainable, ethically produced and environmentally friendly materials, processes and equipment in my work wherever possible. I  teach weaving from beginners to advanced and offer workshops in traditional textile crafts such as spinning, weaving, natural dyeing and feltmaking. These workshops are tailor-made for groups or individuals of all ages, abilities and backgrounds, and take place either in my studio or at a venue of your choice. In addition, I run 2 residential weaving workshops every year, in February and September, at Waddow Hall, near Clitheroe. In 2018 I founded Lostock Weavers, a group of talented contemporary weavers from around the north west of England, meeting monthly to weave and exchange ideas.
