Janis Embleton - Flight Weaving
Swinton, Scottish Borders, Scotland
Janis Embleton is the designer and hand weaver behind Flight Weaving, based in the Scottish Borders. Janis specialises in small batch and one-off woven items which guarantees a truly individual and unique piece for every customer. She particularly likes to explore the combinations of structure and colour, working with luxury fibres such as linen, silk, cashmere and alpaca and, often, bespoke dyeing to achieve the perfect colour combinations. This aspect of her work is incredibly important and it is the area where she has the most creative freedom, allowing her to develop ideas and research her materials to their best use.
