Just a few words about me . . .
I’m a composer and academic (university research fellow in Computer Music) who has finally realised a long-held ambition to learn to weave. In September 2008 I started a HNC course in Woven Textile Design at Bradford College in West Yorkshire, UK. This is a fortnightly blog in which I share something of the adventure that is learning to weave. In August 2009 I held my first residency as a weaver and composer at Farfield Mill in Cumbria, forming Textiles and Music Interact with textile artist and singer Alice Fox. In September 2009 I acquired a beautiful Polish tapestry loom and have begun to study tapestry techniques and practice, with helpful tuition and guidance from tapestry artists, Fiona Hutchinson, Sue Lawty and Jilly Edwards. This blog is my way of recording progress, reflecting on my woven designs and work, and developing a critical appreciation of the rich world of textile art, Enjoy!
