“I just love the colourful kitsch style of this weaving, with its festive colours and soft textures. I’m a big fan of using thick chunky roving as it creates texture and adds flu ness to the design. Roving is amazing to work with and very flexible, it also comes in all sorts of colours. The layering of the fringe at the bottom allows for blocks of colours to hang from the woven section at various lengths and thicknesses, and using the gold ribbon brings in another texture and an interesting colour contrast. My weaving will be taking pride of place in my bedroom!”
