Part of the Tay Bridge Collection Handwoven by Weft Blown

The East Coast of Scotland holds a very special part in my heart as it is where I grew up. My parents family are from Dundee and Edinburgh and as we moved frequently across the country while I was a child it was always a comforting site to see the bridges over the Tay and the Forth when we went to visit them. It always feels like I'm coming home when I see this sight.

In 2016 Gallery Q in Dundee asked me to take part in an exhibition there. I saw this as a fantastic opportunity to design a collection based on one of these iconic bridges, the Tay Rail Bridge. The inspiration was based on a showery day over the Tay with cumulus clouds building quickly and occasionally releasing the rain late in the afternoon. 

This blanket is part of the collection and is handwoven using 100% Shetland wool, sourced from the Shetland Isles. It captures the clouds drifting over the Tay Bridge as the river flows beneath it.

It is the perfect addition to any home and matches beautifully with my Tay Bridge Cushion that is another part of the collection.

 

Handwoven with 100% Shetland wool.
