Hem: Handwoven


A weaver of sustainable accessories and textiles for the home in natural fibres. Nell weaves sea and mountain, coast and peak, capturing movement, pattern and texture to create textiles embedded with underlying codes and a significance of place, time and memory. Taking inspiration from the North Yorkshire coast around Staithes and Whitby, and her Peak District home, the textiles capture fleeting memories and colour palettes of much loved places. Nell's work has been exhibited at the Millennium Gallery, Sheffield, New Ashgate Gallery, the National Centre for Craft and Design, and has been featured in the Financial Times and profiled on the Artist Support Pledge. Nell is a member of the Crafts Council.
