My name is Emily O'Reilly and im a textile and sound artist living in the beautiful Welsh countryside.
I work primarily in knit and weave but have, over the past few years, developed an interest in sound and how it can be used to illustrate provinance in textiles. Much rambling around the hillsides and beaches has resulted in an extensive library of sounds and images that I then turn into textural designs in weave and knit.
I love to use local fibres for my projects and work almost exclusively in wool.
I'm currently in the process of setting up a zero carbon micromill in Wales and hope one day to establish a centre for learning sustainable textile skills, as well as provide jobs within my community.
