About:

I’m an aspiring weave designer, finished my final year of Textile Design at Hereford College of Arts. I have already gained a lot of technical skills and knowledge of materials and processes. Particularly in weaving, where I’ve worked with 4, 8, 16 and 24 shaft looms as well as the extra warp, double cloth and block draft weave structures. I have used computerised looms with digital software Weavepoint. I’m confident with the stencil, UV screen and digital printing and I’m enthused by other constructed textiles such as stitch or knit.

Here's my textile design portfolio. It includes my sustainable approach to using deadstock fabrics as well as creating a closed-loop design within my practice. My portfolio also includes live brief projects and my final major project.

Bespoke collection of lightweight yet textured woven textiles. Naturally dyed yarns have been twisted and looped to create lavish surfaces. Slub cotton yarn adds character to the fabrics and creates an organic pattern.

A knitted collection tailored for monochrome enthusiasts with textured knits and yarn manipulation for tactile surfaces.
