This body of work was inspired by my time in Campulung, Romania on residency with the Circular Catalysts project, British Council Romania. Staying at the beautiful Golescu Villa I explored and documented imagery and motifs from the house itself and surrounding town.
I gathered inspiration from the restored villa and objects of the Cantili family, as well as capturing patterns from various places and people we visited during my stay. This included documenting examples of traditional textiles and other crafts displayed at the Enthnographic Museum and the churches and historical houses of the town. I was kindly invited into Maria Plopeanu and Andreea Savescu's homes to experience their own family textiles heritage.
I came away with a rich source of imagery and inspiration, deciding to channel this into a collection of textiles. Working with woodblock printing and natural dyes I created a series of patterns and printed textile hangings
