“I don’t really trust anyone who says they know everything there is to know about weaving, because I expect to be really, really old and still not know the full ins and outs of the craft.” So says textiles designer Heather Shields, who weaves contemporary homewares and accessories from her studio in Argyll. Her latest collection is inspired by childhood puzzles and games, and centres on blocky, geometric patterns in bold hues, such as her Puzzle blanket (pictured).
