Norwich Shawl

About this project

My handwoven shawl Norwich Red has been purchased for the permanent collection at Norwich Castle Museum. It was chosen as a contemporary interpretation of the famous 19 century Norwich shawls. Woven in softly draping silk and alpaca yarns, some of the red dye was from madder grown on my allotment used to suggest the distinctive Norwich Red colouring of the original shawls. Also selected for exhibition at Norwich Cathedral was Flying Shawls, a woven linen/silk 3D piece floating freely in space.


£300 — £2000
