"This workshop has blown my mind. I'm going to go home and check all of the fibres on the labels in my wardrobe"

Accessible Fibreshed workshop participant, 2023

frame loom weaving workshops

I facilitate handweaving workshops on frame looms in Somerset and beyond.  My workshops are suitable for beginners and for people who have had some experience with handweaving.  I have recently delivered workshops at New Brewery Arts, Cirencester and Art Bank, Shepton Mallet. 

Having also worked in social care since 2007, I am welcoming of people of all abilities and can also adapt workshops particularly to suit people with learning disabilities, mental health conditions or dementia.

fibreshed & textile impact workshops

My Accessible Fibreshed workshops introduce the principles of fibreshed through sensory elements, film, discussion and sorting through discarded charity shop clothing. The workshops spark discussion about the negative impacts of fast fashion, man-made petroleum based fibres such as polyester and acrylic and how the fibreshed ethos counteracts this with its focus on biodegradable, locally grown and made textiles.  

These workshops are important in helping people to become more aware of their connectivity to fashion and the planet. The workshops have been designed for adults with learning disabilities but can be adapted for different audiences, including schools.
