Weft Blown is run by Ange Sewell, the Weaver of Scottish Weather.

I am a weaver-designer-maker based in West Kilbride, Craft Town Scotland and am constantly inspired by the Scottish weather and it’s effects on the surrounding environment over time.  I specialise in creating meteorologically-inspired handwoven textile accessories to wear and for the home and also teach spinning and weaving at both beginner and advanced levels.  I also supply weaving and spinning equipment through my website.

Spinning and Weaving Classes

Passionate about sharing my skills, I teach people of all ages how to weave and spin and create their own handmade items. In doing so I aim to grow the crafts of spinners and weavers across the country, keeping these crafts alive.  Classes are based at my studio in West Kilbride and can be booked directly through the website here: spinning and weaving classes.

Spinning and Weaving Equipment

Weft Blown supplies spinning, weaving and carding equipment made by the quality Dutch manufacturer, Louët.  The range includes the following:

  • spinning wheels
  • spinning accessories (bobbins, flyers, drop spindles etc)
  • table looms
  • floor looms
  • weaving accessories (loom reeds, heddles, shuttles, warping mills etc)
  • hand and drum carders

Subject to availability you are welcome to visit the studio for a demonstration of any equipment you are interested.  Please do get in touch first though so we can check we have the item in stock and can arrange a time – the studio is open to the public Thursday to Saturday 11am to 4pm.

Handwoven Products

The Weft Blown studio is a production weaving studio.   All products are handwoven using a range of looms and high quality woollen yarns that are primarily sourced from Scottish and British producers.

Taking inspiration from the natural world, the handwoven cloth I create in my work has a common theme of encapsulating the colours of the meteorological systems that occur in the skies above. The colours are combined with handwoven textural techniques to show the character of the clouds, wind, precipitation, and light as they changes over time.   Each piece is designed to bring the weather to you in a warm, personal way, whilst also conveying the magnificence of the weather that surrounds us.

Weft Blown’s range contains scarves, cowls, cardigans, cushions and badges and is sold through an online store, through my studio, galleries and other retailers.

At the Scotland’s Trade Fair Spring 2016 my handwoven cowls were awarded Highly Commended in the Best Product in the Launch Gallery Award.
