Meet the maker-free Artist talk
Llio James - 25th February at 2.30pm at Craft in the Bay
FREE ARTIST TALK - no need to book
'I work on a traditional dobby loom which fills every corner of my small attic studio in Aberystwyth. Living and working in the same space allows me to experiment with colour, pattern and yarns. It also allows me to see how the cloth works in day to day spaces before developing my design choice. Colour is a big part of the design process, looking at proportion, scale and geometric shapes. I create paper designs to see what ideas develop, and then move on to the loom. When hand weaving bespoke cloth, the design develops as I weave enabling me to adapt the work as it grows. As a hand weaver I’m able to adapt the work as it grows. Using my hands and eyes to build a contemporary cloth. Woking with wool, I hand weave bespoke cloth for interiors, but more importantly I hand weave cloth to be handled, to be used and to be loved generation after generation.'
