I love to weave, to follow an idea through by interweaving fibres and creating textures. Scotland is special, its mountains, coastline, standing stones are the basis for many weavings. I love the colours and contours of the land and sea. I have also travelled and explored many wonderful places and had time to sketch in Australia, Syria, Turkey, Armenia and Europe.  All these creative experiences  are woven into many weavings.

Dyeing with Fungi

Since 1990 I have been dyeing wool and silk using mushrooms and bracket fungi. This dye source was discovered in the 1960's. There are no archeological records that we know of that show that fungi dye was used to dye fibres.You can see the range of dye colours in the Dyeing to Weave Gallery. I have attended many Symposia in Australia, USA, Scandinavia and Estonia. The symposia are hosted by one of the participating countries every two years.

The next Symposium will be in 2022 in Washington State USA.        Mushrooms For Colour
