The Making Space Exhibition, Unit 15 The Packhorse Shopping Centre, 13th June – 22nd June 2018 –
The Making Space collective exhibition of current work and projects. As well as samples of my textile work, I have presented items of wooden jewellery that I make for sale and the first prototype of my Weave: Huddersfield weaving loom for public engagement.
A community focussed weaving project that asks the people of Huddersfield what they know about the current Textile Industry in the area and asks if the town should be highlighting the importance of this Industry by creating a mood board of vision for the future. This project aims to foster identity and a sense of local pride about the Huddersfield textile industry.

We are carefully selecting makers to present there products in the stunning Byram Arcade to deliver a great range of skills and crafts.
Huddersfield Summer Exhibition
As one of three co-creators of Huddersfield’s first Summer Exhbition I have a great sense of pride. We are creating a sustainable annual event to offer West Yorkshire artists a chance to show and sell the art work they produce. The event offers two prizes and low 10% commission on sales.
