Intuitive handweaver & fibre artist nestled in the Yorkshire Dales
Isobelle is a hand weaver with a unique aesthetic, who comes to the craft from a background in floristry and colour. She works in an environmentally conscious way, using sustainable fibres such as wool, nettles, flax and hemp, as well as recycling and up-cycling fibres that would otherwise end up in landfill.
The colours and textures of the natural world are at the heart of every ‘Wildflower Weaver’ creation – from the inspirational settings of her home and workplace nestled in the beautiful Yoekshire Dales, to the organic fibres and natural dyes used in her designs. Isobelle weaves in an intuitive manner, allowing the colours and textures of her yarns to guide the structure of the cloth. Moss, lichens, wildflowers, trees, and the landscape are all reflected in her weaving.
Isobelle uses her art to celebrate the quality and diversity of nature's colours and textures as well as taking inspiration from her travels and the multicultural history of the art form that is weaving.
Always continuing research into a more 'compassionate cloth' ethic, you can be certain with each piece, that it was hand made with positive intent in an ethical and sustainable way.
