Wool combines with silk, flora colours fibre, fleece is transformed to felt or yarn …these are the connections I love to explore through craft.

eco-printing or bundle dyeing, inspired by the work of India Flint, Nicola Brown, and a generous online community of dyers who love to share the results of their experiments.

Each bundle-dyed piece tells a unique story combining the elements of water, soil, leaves, fire, cloth and time. It is such a delight to work directly with the textures and palette of local plant material.
