About the Maker:

Sally Hampson grew up in an Irish household; her parents came to London where she was born along with her five brothers and sisters. They came with very little so the things they had were precious, a check wool blanket was one of them. Sitting on wooden crates making a rag rug out of old woollen suiting pieces was an early and indelible memory. She spent time with the shepherds in the Cheviot Hills on the Scottish boarder. This wild and rugged landscape continues to be an important part of what she wants to share through her weaving. These simple aesthetics have influenced Sally’s artistic career, from working in the theatre on costumes and sets, to travelling to Egypt, Ethiopia and Kenya, to work with artisan weavers, potters and basket makers. Always close to the colours and textures of natural materials and the simplest way of combining them together. Sally’s latest woven collection takes you into the heart of the British landscape. Transforms her journeys to the wild landscape of The Outer Hebrides and The Shetland Isles into unique woven textile pieces. In collaboration with bespoke mills in Shetland and Yorkshire, using wool from indigenous sheep, she has created pieces that truly represent the land.
