Claire Cawte

Claire has carved a niche in slow textiles. She is well known for her unique plant dye scarves where foraged leaves, bark, berries and lichen create fortuitous patterns on the fabric to extraordinary effect.

 

In contrast to the delicate nature of this work, Claire also makes more sculptural forms including bags, bowls and non-functional cutlery from native breed fleece, which tends to be coarser and more labour intensive to felt.

Claire’s playful cutlery is simply a joy to behold. She collects moss and lichen covered sticks whilst out walking which she then uses as handles for whimsical felted utensils.

Each and every area of her practice demonstrates a commitment to sustainability whilst celebrating the endless resources found in nature.
