Wild Rose Weaving
Rose Riedel O’Brien
I handspin, hand weave and naturally dye locally sourced wools – from the flock at Embercombe, Devon for example. I have been experimenting with making shawls, blankets, rugs and clothes for over two years in and around the Dartmoor area. My partner and I rent half an acre of land in the Tamar valley, we’ve been there for nearly a year growing organic veg and herbs, with an emphasis on regenerating the land after many years of overgrazing. This year I plan to grow dye plants to process and use within my own wool work, as well as to package and sell to other natural dyers.
