Textile Designer, Hand weaver, Weaving Tutor and Author
I studied industrial textile design at the Scottish College of Textiles, graduating with a
First Class Honours Degree in 1972. After working in industry for three years I bought a
16-shaft Dobby loom and built up a career as a commission weaver, designing and weaving functional fabrics for private clients.
I taught a one-day, weekly community education class in Oxford from 1987 – 2004. In 2009 I stopped my commission weaving work and now focus on teaching weaving and weave design from my own studio in Somerset, UK.
I have written three books on weave design:
The Weavers Book of Fabric Design - published 1983
Designing Woven Fabrics – published 2008, reprinted in 2009 and 2015
Exploring Woven Fabrics – published 2020
