Welcome to The Society of Arts and Crafts of new south wales

Joy Dodd. Weaving



I learned to weave through the HandWeavers & Spinners Guild of NSW beginning in 2004 and building on a lifetime love of textiles enjoyed through knitting, crocheting, embroidery and dressmaking. I mostly make wearable items such as scarves, wraps, ladies’ garments and handbags. I prefer working with natural fibres such as fine wool, alpaca, silk, bamboo and cotton. I love colour and try to use fibres which are hand-dyed. I enjoy expressing my creativity through working with different coloured and beautifully textured yarns to create unique handcrafted articles with a soft luxurious feel and appearance to suit a modern market. I am learning continuously and strive to improve my skills and ability through formal and informal training.”
