Keynote Speaker: Susie Taylor

Susie has been weaving for over 30 years, primarily on shaft looms and has 12 years experience designing high-end, jacquard upholstery fabrics. She spent many years exploring hand manipulation techniques to produce multi-layered structures and in 2012 she received the HGA Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving, Level 1. That experience really broadened her skills and understanding of loom controlled structures. Now she finds great potential in combining loom controlled structures with hand manipulation. Today, she is an award-winning artist creating dimensional textiles that incorporates origami and weaving together. She also works as a freelance designer for the commercial upholstery market.
