Eleanor Walker

Weaving, textiles

Hello, I’m Eleanor and I am a handweaver.

I am a recent Manchester School of Art, Textiles graduate, now based in my home county of North Yorkshire.

 

At my cosy, rural, home-studio I have a small table loom and a large floor loom where I am creating my own woven textiles, usually for the home. For me, weaving is a never-ending journey where craft, storytelling and the senses come together. I like to explore each of these through what I create. By making hand woven pieces for the home, I hope to bring comfort and beauty to everyday life.

 

Wherever I can, I use natural fibres and materials, like soft cotton, fluffy merino wool, nubbly silk noil and more. Nature is what inspires me the most, with her colours and diversity, intricacies and simplicity, eternal growth, and perfect imperfections. But I also find ideas and inspiration in people, experiences, and feelings; sometimes a colour or pattern choice can be a purely intuitive decision.
