My work shows my obsession with fabric and threads that has been constant in my life since I was very small. I make sculptural nests and pods that can live in your house or garden quite happily, they are made from wire, wool, fabric, beads and whatever comes to hand that is weatherproof. I also create little art dolls that you can hold in your hand, sit on your shelf or stick pins in as the mood takes you (they are actually pin cushions).

Because I love recycling I now have a lovely range of cuffs, hats and blankets made from washed and felted pure wool in fair isle patterns.

Alongside these are my tactile books and boxes and experimental work. There will be work at all stages of completion on show.


Special Events: I will be making various pieces of work throughout the two weekends.
