  • Biography
I am passionate about making things by hand. Handweaving is not a single process but a sequence of processes, and each step has its own pleasures and challenges. A woven textile can be meticulously planned or improvised at the loom, and a combination of these approaches appeals to the different parts of my nature. I find a deep satisfaction in handling every individual thread, discovering surprises in the interaction of warp and weft and, ultimately, realising my vision as woven cloth.

Cally is a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and a Past President of Complex Weavers, an international organisation with a mission to educate and encourage innovation in handweaving.
