Skeinydipping blankets. Warming hearts and bodies. Why I weave them.
Skeinydipping blankets are woven stories. I weave my stories from my journeys across the world because I want to create meaningful artworks with Soul and with purpose. My blankets warm. They warm hearts and bodies; warming hearts when they are gifted; and bodies when they are placed on, or snuggled under.
In a time where it has never been so easy to obtain products; there has also never been so much waste. My hands weave my memories into beautiful handwoven blankets which are made to be used and to last generations.
As an artist, I need to express myself and tell my stories. My hands are one of my gifts and I use them artfully and creatively to weave and sew these items. In each blanket or wrap, holds my memories of a culture or experience I've had whilst travelling throughout the world. I want to share my stories through the movement of my hands and beautiful indie-dyed pure wools. These blankets will also have their own new stories held within them as they warm hearts and bodies over generations.
