My name is Marina. I'm a textile and fibre artist based in Bath, England, dyeing and spinning one-off and small batch yarns and fibre, as well as knitting and weaving unique pieces. When I was little, both of my grandmothers taught me to knit (I forgot how in between!), and I've loved woking with yarn and textiles ever since.
My professional background is in publishing, where I worked in sales (and hated it) before moving over to print production and editorial. I loved copy editing and proofreading, so when I quit my full-time job to focus on making and freelance work, I wanted to keep my hand in. I now tech edit knitting patterns, which is a perfect combination for my skills!
I am always conscientious in my work, as in my life. Minimising waste, reusing materials where possible, and sourcing high-quality fibre as locally as possible are hugely important to me.
Commissions and collaborations
In addition to the ready-made items available in the online shop, I hand-dye, card, spin and weave to order. I love to work with farms and other textile artists and crafters.
Do you have an idea for a wall-hanging that would complete your home decor? Maybe you have wool from your own sheep you'd like hand-dyed or spun with care into yarn? Or are you a weaver looking for the perfect materials for your next project? Please get in contact if you'd like to enquire or request a commission.
