Carolyn has always been a ‘textiles’ person and has knitted and sewn since childhood. At school, while preparing to apply for a place at Art School, her art teacher found some simple looms in the cupboard and showed Carolyn how to use one to weave a set of place mats. She was hooked on weaving from that day and still loves the experience of turning yarns into woven pieces.

Since that small beginning Carolyn has woven floor rugs, curtains, cloth for making up into clothing, wraps and scarves, in yarns of many different fibres. She now specializes in silk scarves, woven in complex patterns.

Her spun silk yarn is bought in the undyed state and dyed by her to the colours desired for the next piece to be woven. She achieves her colours with both synthetic and natural dyes.
