Originally from Norway, Kjerstin is a self-taught weaver developing her skills and making beautifully woven creations since 2008. To extend her skills and expand her ‘library’ of threads Kjerstin also learned to spin. Kjerstin uses mainly natural yarns like wool, alpaca, silk, cotton, and linen. She loves playing with colour and texture, rather than intricate patterns.
In her home studio in Walliston, Kjerstin has three large countermarch looms. One of the looms is fitted out with a single unit draw loom attachment that she is currently trying to work out how to use.
For the open studios, she will bring along a smaller table loom to demonstrate some simple weaving.
