About

Hi thanks for taking the time to read about my project. I'm a textile and sound artist living in the beautiful Welsh countryside. I'm passionate about the provenance of textiles and use sound to try and connect production process with the consumer. I do this by recording the environment that the raw materials are grown and processed in then turning these sounds into textural patterns that can be viewed whilst listening to the sounds themselves.

I would like to be able to produce a range of both woven and knitted items that utilise the beautiful local products that we have to offer like the cambrian mountain wool and ystrad and garthenor organic wools.

I would also like to create an exhibition that illustrates the intense process that goes into each creation.

I intend to do this in a low to zero carbon way using only hand operated machines and solar power for my sound recorder and laptop.

By backing this project you can help me buy a new loom and the materials to knit and weave with. I hope to one day expand this project to be able to teach sustainable life skills and offer jobs in my community.

Thank you so much for helping me realise my dream.

Risks and challenges

the biggest challenge is moving the loom from its current location in london to Wales but this is only geography :)
