After working for many years in London theatre and stealing time to make fibre crafts of all kinds for fun; I moved to Vancouver in 2006. Looking for my place here I answered a tiny advertisement for a ‘knitter wanted’ in the window of the Silk Weaving Studio. I was welcomed into this wonderful group of creative and inspiring people and fed with ideas and help, kindness and encouragement. I am delighted to make woven and knitted pieces for the studio and thrilled to have begun a journey exploring the possibilities of dying silk. Recently I have chosen to investigate the luxurious softness of silk mohair blends, which has been a part of my knitting for a long time, in my woven pieces and I am starting to explore the huge possibilities offered by new Louet Spring.
