Spinning Weaving and Dyeing with Anne Lander

A picture for Spinning-Weaving-and-Dyeing-with-Anne-Lander

Anne began spinning in 1964 and weaving with handspun yarn in 1965. She has taught at Alsager College, the Association Summer School, Dartington and for Dorset Adult Education Dept. She is a member of the Wiltshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers.

She has had numerous exhibitions of her work and has examples in the Craft Study Centre, previously at the Holbourne Museum in Bath, now at Farnham.

Anne was determined from the beginning to use natural fibre, particularly wool and flax and to use plant dyes. Everything she weaves is handspun by herself. Her goal is to make an individual product reflecting the beauty and the character of the fibre. Please note that each page is a thumbnail which can be enlarged.
