Creating my submission for Cambrian Mountains Wool Challenge

Weaving the upholstery cloth on an old 8 shaft counter march floor loom. This loom came to Bath Spa University from Anglesey. The colours were inspired by the domestic architecture of Reykjavik.

The pattern is inspired by traditional Icelandic folklore symbols. The wool was supplied undyed by the Cambrian Wool Challenge. It was then dyed to reflect my colour reference by Triskelion yarns.

The piece for this challenge is a collaboration with Carmarthenshire-based Mick Sheridan, who I worked with to create a simple piece of upholstered furniture to showcase my fabric design. I designed the red section specifically to form the front edge of the piece.
