About this project

Swailes creates handwoven tapestry, drawing inspiration from the materials and process. Each piece is created over days, weeks or months on either a small travelling loom or on a static roll on loom at her studio in West Sussex.
Using a limited palette of materials and techniques, a path is created and travelled along repetitively until the process becomes a meditation. The image that remains shows a personal text of Swailes weaving.
