Jo Aylwin Studio

Weaver and textile artist

I am a textile artist working mostly through hand weaving, although I also use felting, knitting and crochet. I dye most of the yarns I use. My work is abstract, with a focus on the yarns used to create the texture and pattern. My inspiration comes from storytelling, history and the park next door. I am mainly interested in creating hangings and decorative pieces but will make small scale commissioned work for upholstery or soft furnishings. Commissions taken.
