June is a weaver/textile artist. Weaving by hand on traditional-style handlooms she produces contemporary woven textiles in her Norwich studio. Visitors are welcome to visit the studio by appointment to see work in progress or to commission work.
Woven with delicate dyed and painted threads, designs range from gossamer-fine silk scarves to woven transparencies, large hangings and 3 D art pieces. Materials used are mainly natural fibres, especially silk, coloured and painted with dye solutions prior to weaving, thereby making each item unique. Decorative art pieces may include more unusual materials such as copper wire and ‘found materials’.
Themes are informed by fleeting changes in nature: of skies, ripples of wind and water, reflections and shadows. Through the interplay of shadow and light and the use of curves and drape the idea of movement and change is explored in the weaving. Inspiration comes from the ever-changing natural environment, particularly the North Norfolk coast.
