We now combine our love of creating bespoke hand-woven fabrics with hand-weaving workshops, commissions, 1-1 weave tutoring and selling weaving equipment.
We offer a stand-alone design and sampling service for woven fabrics, which can then be hand-woven and ‘hand-finished’ or ‘unfinished’, in small quantities.
Dr Janette Matthews, Lecturer in Textiles, School of the Arts, English and Drama, Loughborough University, says,
“I am currently conducting textile design research into processes to create three-dimensional textile surfaces. Emily (Weaversmith) was commissioned to weave several warps as part of this project. Her weaving is of a high quality and work was delivered on time and to specification. Her knowledge of fabric construction and structure is of benefit to the project.”
Her cutting-edge designs have caught the eye of major textile design companies such as Desigual and Harlequin, and have earned a number of prestigious awards including accolades from the Worshipful Company of Weavers and the Society of Dyers and Colourists.
Emily is also employed by the Workers’ Educational Association which allows her to run workshops at the Fairfield’s Skills Centre in Queniborough, Leicestershire, which helps “adults with learning difficulties move into the world of work”.
