Welcome to Claire's web site!
I was taught to knit by my grandmother when I was 6 years old, by the
time I was 13 I was hand knitting jumpers using commercial knitting patterns.
I have been hand
spinning different fibres for over 20 years,then hand knitting the fibre in to garments that I have designed
I use eco friendly fibres such as wool, silk, alpaca, mohair, soya protein and bamboo.
natural dyes I use are from plants that I grow in my garden or plants I get from the hedgerow when I am
out for a walk.
I have had articles in-
Sheep,Goats and Alpacas
I sell my work at Higher Street Gallery, Dartmouth
I have had numerous solo exhibitions of my work across the South West of England including
Gallery 1 at the Phoenix Art centre in Exeter Devon
I am the author of 'Hand Spinning and
natural dyeing' this is available in bookshops across the UK and in the USA
