Textile artist Mary Maddocks has recently relocated to South Gloucestershire with her young family after saying cheerio to a career in law and the bustle of daily life in London. Having grown up in the Welsh countryside, Mary yearned for the open fields, the winding country lanes and night drives out to view the stars from her VW camper van. Her creative work combines a passion for woven crafts with a lifelong love of the natural world to create wall-hangings and woven jewellery, inspired by landscape and texture. She is particularly drawn to the landscapes of West Wales and the Scottish Highlands and the muted, elegant, natural tones are present within of her work.
For Mary, the natural world, its quirks and mysteries, immense beauty and unnerving power is a constant source of fascination and a place to liberate the mind, allowing us to focus on the more nourishing aspects of life. In addition to Mary’s loom-made woven textiles she also makes seasonal wreaths, festive decorations and is a prolific blogger and use of creative writing within her inventive output. Don’t miss Mary’s brilliant Contemporary Loom Weaving workshop for adults and kids’ Story Weaving session in late May.
