Handwoven panel
  • Handwoven panel

    This artwork is climate beneficial. It has been made using regeneratively farmed wool, from high on the Mendip Hills in Somerset. The sheep have been reared in a way that actively increases the biodiversity of the landscape in which they live. Jade’s work uses only materials that can safely be returned to the soil at the end of their long life, providing nourishment to the earth from which they originally grew.


    It is an exploration of form and colour within the discipline of ‘Rosepath’ weaving, using a technique that Jade has developed over a number of years to create curved lines. The grey and brown colours show the natural shades of the sheep, while the soft purple is a natural dye made with madder root, grown locally in Bristol. The yellow is from weld, which has been wild foraged in Bristol.


    The natural grey tufts show the re-purposing of wool remnants from previous weaving projects.
