Independent yarn dyer, weaver, spinner and knitter. I’m trying to keep history and cottage industry alive. I dye yarns and materials with botanical dyes, acid dyes, batik techniques, indigo dye and tie dye. I weave in traditional weave styles and also trained in Saori weaving in Japan. I blend fibres, card fibres and make art yarns. I am also a reenactor from the Viking period onwards, making historical clothing and trading at historical events.
Weaving (historical patterns, weighted looms, floor looms, inkle loom, Saori weaving & tablet weaving). Braiding (sprang and kumihimo). Spinning animal and plant fibres. Dyeing using plants and natural dyes, acid dyeing and colour hues. Historical clothing, nålbinding and authentic materials. Herbal medicine and historic remedies.
