Also you can see it being woven on my scaffold loom. It was woven on its side because of the shapes. You can also see my painting which I wove from. I usually have my painting at the side of my loom and I weave from this using my eye preferring not to use a template. This tapestry was inspired by those that came before us after several visits to Cairn holy in stewartry @dumfriesandgalloway. @cairnholy chambered cairns are Neolithic burial stones The columns in my work represent a holding and a strength. The cutting marks are from the sandstone I see around me in the buildings in South West of Scotland. They are makers marks and each has a different score depending on the stonemason. This exhibition has over 30 tapestry artists showing their amazing works. I do hope you will be able to see this great show in one of the venues above. #britishtapestrygroup #americantapestryalliance #appliedartsscotland #tapestryexhibition #tapestryweaversofinstagram #tapestry #westonparkmuseum #morleycollegelondon #morleycollegegallery #fairfieldmill ...

What a weekend @springfling. So much love for my work and so much love for all of you that saw how I do what I do when I design and make @tapestries. It’s a real labour of love and I had to say goodbye to quite a few pieces this weekend including the very first tapestry I ever wove 😥. But I’m glad you have it on your walls including this big beaut ‘Transactions in Contrast - Land and Sea’ you have really made it all worthwhile 💙💙💙💙 #springfling #tapestryweaving #shepaintswithyarn #openstudios #scaffoldloom #blueinteriors #textilesforyourwall #finearttextiles #dumfriesandgalloway ...

Now that I’ve completed my 2 tapestries next up is @springfling . I’m using my left over yarn from my big tapestry to make little bookmarks woven by myself for you. I am looking forward to showing you my large tapestry I completed last month - the big reveal! It will be on my wall alongside other work. Please come to the lovely Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland where I will be in the village of Thornhill studio 88 and see me weaving in my studio on my scaffold loom and enjoy my garden before you step into the house to see more work. #springfling #dumfriesandgalloway #openstudios #handmade #tapestry #tapestryweaversofinstagram #shepaintswithyarn ...
