Bio

Cally Booker is a handweaver based in Dundee and much of her inspiration is drawn from the city: from the grandeur of its waterfront setting to the details of quirky buildings and everyday living. In her handwoven collections she makes extensive use of multi-layered weaves using vibrant, naturally dyed and organic yarns. The interplay of different layers of colour gives her work its distinctive appeal. Through experimentation with data and digital tools, Cally is using weave both to tell stories and to celebrate the structure of the cloth itself.

Cally is passionate about making things by hand and shares her love of weaving through The Weaving Space, a programme of workshops based online and in her colour-filled studio. She is a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and a Past President of Complex Weavers.
