A passion for "painting " with yarns - tapestry weaving and more.

I live in Adelaide, South Australia and work in my studio in the garden, near an old almond tree.
I initially studied Textile Design then married, immigrated to Australia and raised our family. Now I am weaving tapestries for over 30 years.
It is time consuming work, but I like every part of it. I do my own design work, which I enlarge to create a life size version, called cartoon. From this I can trace the outlines of the shapes onto my warps - the vertical strings on the loom. Then I weave each shape with the particular yarn I choose for it.
When the weaving is finished, I sew up vertical slits, tidy the yarn ends at the back of the tapestry and sew a backing which also contains a sleeve for a batten to make it easy to hang the tapestry on the wall. Each tapestry is an original work and I choose all my materials and yarns with care.
I also like to weave at my table looms to make table runners and mats, scarfes and dish towels (tea towels). Again, I don't repeat any weaving, partly also because I like to use individual hand spun yarns which can not be duplicated. I like to spin silk and wool, crochet and knit too and when I have spare time I paint or tend my garden.
I very much enjoy having an Etsy shop!
Every item from my shop comes with care instructions and I am happy to gift wrap free - please let me know. I continuously list items as they become available and
hope you enjoy your visit too!
