Inspired by early weaving techniques, Susie creates textiles that represent ancient cloth. To achieve this finish, she collects and spins local plant fibres, including hemp linen, cotton and nettle. Susie then weaves these threads and works the final cloth with plaster, gesso, pigments, indigo and tannin. This aged patina breaks down the fibre, giving Susie the opportunity to mend and repair the piece, adding to its aged quality.
