Sophie is an East Anglian textile designer specialising in woven textiles. Her designs and fabrics are focused on pushing the boundaries of colour and pattern to create contemporary fabrics for interiors, bringing a modern aesthetic to an ancient craft.
Sophie’s fabrics are designed and hand woven to order using a 16 shaft Ashford table loom at her home studio. Predominantly using natural fibres, Sophie’s work is typically influenced by the endless possibilities that colour creates. It is the most unexpected perfect colour combinations that draw inspiration, often the materials that she works with inspiring the designs on the loom - and also from the weaving process itself.
Sophie and her woven products have featured in the National Young Traders final 2021, resulting in her being awarded Arts & Crafts Trader of the Year.
Above all, she hopes to use her passion for her craft to create textiles that can be enjoyed for generations to come.
These are some examples of Sophie's work. Please look in the shop for what is currently available at the Gallery.
