Ros Hornbuckle working in Tapestry Weaver

My weaving begins with a visual and emotional experience of landscape, often the coast and rivers of Wales, and with an impression of mood and colours, shapes and lines. As time goes on, I discover both myself and the landscape in the process of weaving, in an almost spiritual way. In the hours of concentration and the rhythmic manipulation of warp, wool and colour, I become one with the place that I remember and create a bond of colour and texture between myself and the land and water. I use local fleece, which I dye and spin. mixing colours during carding as I need them. This gives my work a uniquely watercolour effect.
