work & projects

In 2016, Emma was asked to restore a 100-year-old Jacquard loom at the Germany Museum of Technology. After almost a year of dedicated work, the loom is now fully functional and on display to the general public. Emma has been maintaining and running regular demonstrations on the loom ever since.

Woven structures and objects can be integrated innovatively in interior spaces, sculpture, and other forms of visual arts. Emma is always happy to collaborate with creative minds who need help and expertise of a weaver.

Weaving is one of the world’s oldest textile technologies, but it also continues to be one of the most innovative, and Emma believes in exploring this bridge between history and the contemporary. By working directly with the technology behind her craft, and not being afraid to explore new mediums and approaches, she continues to find new ways of pushing the boundaries of weaving.

Weaving can be exciting and cutting-edge, but it’s also comforting and tactile. In her 2019/2020 collection, Emma has combined these elements to create a range of home accessory textiles that blend her love of bold contemporary design with the familiar warmth of traditional wool.

Emma believes weaving is a craft that deserves to be shared. It’s meditative rhythm, it’s engaging tactility, and the sensation of building your own cloth are experiences Emma enjoys introducing through her weaving workshops.
