Christabel Balfour studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, specialising in woven sculpture. Since graduating she has developed her practice as a tapestry weaver, and now produces handwoven tapestries and rugs from her studio in south east London.
She works either on her 1976 Harris rug loom, or on frame looms which she builds herself. Her work draws from both the wild landscape and the modern city and explores the way the elements- wind, rain and mist- shape them both. She also finds inspiration in the work of master weavers around the world and textile traditions which stretch back centuries.
Her rugs are made to order in the size and colour combinations of your choice.
