Farfield Mill

Ali Sharman - Handweaver

Ali weaves cloth by hand in her workshop here at the Mill. She loves the wild and remote landscapes and never tires of walking across the northern fells. The natural environment is her inspiration – and you can find elements of the landscape and nature woven into her tweeds.

Ali learned to weave at Farfield Mill with Laura Rosenzweig and later embarked on Janet Phillip’s 2 year “Master Class”.  She is a member of the Lancs & Lakes Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers and has exhibited work at the Association’s national exhibition.
