Gallery 5: Ashford Loom Hand Weaving

 

Exploring living boundaries. 

 

Hedgerows support  wildlife whilst at the same time constraining living things within

fields.

A worthy conservation subject,  the hedgerow is an underestimated man-made resource spanning

the countryside.

Ribbons Across the Countryside, hand woven on a heddle loom, is a celebration of that place.
