I am driven by colour. It is why I spin, weave, knit and dye. I joined the Silk Weaving Studio in 2019 and am privileged to work alongside this team of talented and creative artists. I pinch myself every day I come to work in The Studio and am thankful for collegues with such encouraging and sharing spirits. Each day I learn more about colour, weaving and working with silk and silk blends. I also enjoy the rhythm of a studio that is open to the public. It is wonderful to weave and create all day long, but there a richness is added when you are able to share your passion with those who walk through the door. Always a pleasure to: meet other spinners and weavers in search of just the right fibre or yarn, entertain curious visitors who have never seen a loom before, help people in their search for a gift for that special someone or assist customers in search of a new piece to complement their own wardrobe.
As well as weaving for The Silk Weaving Studio I have been published in Spin Off and Ply magazines and give lectures and workshops (in person and on the Zoom platform) on the arts of spinning and dyeing. Any workshops hosted by The Silk Weaving Studio and Sanjo Silks will be posted here https://www.silkweavingstudio.com/spinning-and-weaving-lessons--looms.html You may also find me at www.claddaghfibrearts.com and on Instagram as claddaghfibrearts
