At present my time is split. I am in the process of weaving off larger sample pieces from one of my favourite collections. My plan is to develop ideas for interior and fashion products. Unfortunately with my weaving width restricted to only 20” this process will take a little time, once complete though I am keen to begin selling the finished items.
The remainder of my time is spent researching for my new collection. The inspiration behind the project came from a recent trip to New York and a visit to the cities Metropolitan Museum of Art. Once inside I was fascinated by the art from ancient Egypt in particular the heavily patterned wall tiles and murals which I thought would translate well into woven designs.
Now with the colour palette in place my focus is on developing potential peg plans and structure ideas.
