Maker's bio

The Woven Briar is my weaving workshop based in the rolling hills on the edge of Exmoor. Using blade shorn fleeces from my flock and harvested or foraged plant materials, I create textiles and craft materials that are fully traceable and sustainable. I offer tuition in my workshop in Ford as well as a social spinning group in Wiveliscombe. I have a flock of rare breed sheep which I keep for their beautiful and versatile fleeces, blade shorn to improve the length of fibre and the welfare of the animal. I wash, spin and weave the wool into beautiful one of a kind pieces right here on the farm, creating 100% natural, biodegradable, sustainable pieces in tune with the seasons. I also send fleeces to a fibre mill just an hour from our fields, to be made in to sliver and yarn, suitable for felting and spinning. All of our animals are grass-fed, well cared for with the highest regard for their welfare and health.
