Maker Interview: WovenBlush

Woven art has made a massive comeback recently. Jodi who works under the studio name WovenBlush makes beautiful statement pieces using simple patterns in monochrome and neutral colours.
Who are you?
I am Jodi Osborne, mama of one and the weaver behind WovenBlush.
What do you Make/Do?
I make hand woven wall hangings.
Do you have a background in craft and design - when did you first start making?
I studied art and design and illustration at college but left that behind when I started work. I worked in social media up until 2014 which is when I had my daughter and became a ‘stay-at-home mum’ and this is when I felt the need to be creative for the first time in a long while! I bought myself a loom and I haven’t stopped since.
Can you describe your typical making process?
I am not a planner so I start by going head first into the making process with a vague idea of what I want to achieve and it usually works out ok! I love the monochrome look and my work usually consists of one colour and one neutral, I’m really into the simplicity.
What do you enjoy most about the process?
The quiet thinking time, I get to be still and make something I really love. I find the whole process to be therapeutic.
Can you describe your studio/workspace?
I wish wish wish that I could have a studio space but until that day, my dining room will have to make do. I would describe it as a half wool store/ half eating area!
What keeps you going whilst you work - soundtrack? Snacks? A fluffy sidekick?
Netflix, coffee and a good candle. I can’t even tell you how many Forensic Detectives I’ve watched whilst working!
What can we look forward to seeing from you in the future?
Circles, circles and more circles. I’m currently on a circle high with my designs.
Three things you can’t live without:
My family - gotta have love!
My friends - see above!
My loom and weaving supplies - gotta be creative!
Three favourite places:
The Lizard, Cornwall - Sitting in the Polpeor Cafe with a fried breakfast overlooking the coast.
Baydon, Wiltshire - many happy childhood memories at my grandparent’s house.
Byron Bay, NSW Australia - hard to pinpoint one place in Australia after traveling the whole east coast but this place was one of the best.
Three favourite foods:
Sushi/Sashimi - I could eat it everyday.
Indian Food - Garlic Chilli Chicken in particular.
Pie! - A good old pie and mash combo.
