We asked Carol for some insight into why she loves to create and what inspires her…
“For me, spinning and weaving is as close as I can get to making magic. It’s such a thrill to take something as simple as fleece or fibers and transform them into a fabulous fabric. Gets me every time.”
“I’m forever inspired by nature, and my recent work features countryside colours and textures which make me happy. Whether it’s the rich, dusty ochres of Cornish lichen or juicy lime greens of fresh Spring growth, I want to capture them in my cloth so I can hold onto the moment forever.”
Cornish Lichen Scalf …. “I was inspired by the gorgeous colours and textures of the lichen that covers the cliffs in Cornwall. It’s a freestyle pattern, created as I weave.”
Below is Carols Cornish Seascape Scarfnalongside her inspiration; the Early Summer Cornwall Clifftops. “Aqua for the sea, pink for the thrift and touches of yellow for the lichen. It’s a freestyle pattern, created as I weave.”
