Charlotte is an award winning weaving who has been weaving for over 20 years. As a hand weaver her business is all about the process of weaving, constructing art-led pieces from a wide range of traditional yarns such as silk, linen and merino, to less traditional materials such as wire, nylon, paper yarns and horsehair.

Charlotte is running workshops in Deptford aimed at weavers who want to develop their weaving knowledge and skill.

“ My current project is to weave hangings and pieces inspired by coastal landscapes, rock formations and the coastal dynamics of this region.”

High twist yarns hold a particular fascination as they contain an energy in the fact that they are over twisted. When the fabric is woven and washed this energy locked into the twist is released and the overall fabric will shrink, more or less depending on how it is woven. In a scarf this energy causes the fabric to pleat and crinkle. In art-led work it can be combined with wire and nylon to create 3-dimensional pieces.
