Tutor: Anne Field
Anne has been weaving for over 30 years in New Zealand and wrote the first Ashford Book of Shaft Weaving. Her weaving concentrates on fabric that cannot be woven on industrial looms (given that hand weaving cannot compete commercially in this area). In 2004 she was awarded a Craft Scholarship by the New Zealand Craft Council and came to the UK to study at the Ann Sutton Foundation. Here she explored woven devoré using two types of fibre in warp and weft and then dissolving one of them in defined areas. The course is designed to teach this technique.
