Creative Scotland Artists'
Creative Scotland awarded funding for
research into the performance and behaviour
of materials through a study of historical
examples of woven fabric.
Taking me far and wide, Rovaniemi in Finland, Halifax, Ludlow, Orkney and the Royal Botanic Garden at Kew in London, the project inspired development through a deeper understanding and knowledge of the components and structure of woven cloth constructed from plant fibres.
This experimentation with new weaving skills, provided me with the opportunity to create a solid foundation and creative springboard for
a new direction. The fruits of this will become evident in future exhibitions over the coming years.
