Textiles in Practice

The project ‘Concertina’ explores how woven samples can be manipulated into three-dimensional forms inspired by Japanese culture, in particular origami. Becoming more mindful of my surroundings, inspiration came from recognising folds within daily life and finding beauty and use in everyday objects and materials.

I am motivated by experimentation on the loom with both process and material exploration in the aim to encourage the viewer to see weaving from a different perspective.

These woven pieces have a multifunctional use, both practical and conceptual in their application.

I have been awarded the ‘Context Weavers Award’ for Textiles in Practice 2019.
