My fabrics take inspiration from the colours and geometric patterns found in my dynamic city environment, whilst celebrating the rich heritage of British weaving.
Rowenna Mason is an award-winning weaver, creating distinctive hand-woven fabrics for interiors. Her fabrics celebrate the best of traditional technique, rural materials, innovative design and urban inspiration.
Having studied textile design at Nottingham Trent University, Rowenna went on to complete an MA at Chelsea College of Art. Here she was awarded the Ashley Family Foundation scholarship, the TED award for Sustainable Design and Craftsmanship, as well as funding from the Worshipful Company of Woolmen. One of her monochrome British wool designs received the 2015 Campaign for Wool prize from the Bradford Textile Society, and she has since received the 2015 Cockpit Arts/Clothworkers' Foundation Award.
Rowenna takes a fluid and instinctive approach to weaving, pushing the boundaries of the craft to create bold patterns. A love of colour drives her work; the geometric designs combine simplicity with complex detail.
