And that's the great thing about the Travelling Suitcase, it's a wonderful opportunity for quite unknown weavers or students who have attended specific workshops to have their work up on the wall beside some of the countries better known tapestry weavers.

This is my first ever entry into The Travelling Suitcase Exhibition from around 1997/98.

The idea for the design was taken from a wood print I had previously been working on a few years earlier.

Tapestry Weavings By Stephenie Collin


I hope you find Warped Art & Design both interesting and inspiring, and that it will encourage anyone working with fibre to investigate and experiment further within their chosen field.

The basic loom, which is my tool of trade, has remained technologically unchanged. This aspect appeals to me as I weave contemporary images on a machine of such simple and ancient construction.

And if the loom be silenced,
then needles, threads and fingers
have plenty more to say.
