As a novice weaver, I am constantly experimenting, building skills, learning techniques, and finding new materials to work with.
The experimenting mindset is also how I approach painting, preferring watercolour, acrylic inks and acrylic gouache.
Items for sale: I have listed many small handwoven items like mug rugs, bookmarks, bands, key fobs and lanyards, as well as large scarves and tea towels on my Ko-fi ship. Occasionally other items are added - sewn, crochet and knitted - as well as original artworks in watercolour, acrylic and ink.
I weave with the looms below, and spin with drop spindles and an Ashford traveller spinning wheel.

Slow vlogs on YouTube
My videos include plenty of slow kitty vignettes, time spent in the garden with the plants through the seasons, snippets of my weaving, spinning and art projects, recordings if I go out and about in Germany (rarely - privacy laws here are super strict), and occasionally some slow and small-batch cooking.
