About Shropshire Weavers

I love colour and texture and using my own hand-dyed, hand-spun yarns from natural fibres, local sheep and alpaca fleece, to create my weavings.
In 1988 having been spinning for about 5 years I gained a post-graduate Diploma in Handloom, Weaving, Spinning and Dyeing at Bradford University and have been running Textile workshops for the last 25 years.
