Christabel Balfour is an artist and tapestry weaver. She weaves large-scale rugs and wall-hangings on her two large floor looms which she restored and reassembled herself. Her work employs soft pastel colours and simple geometric shapes to create a sense of openness and tranquility.
She hosts workshops in her home studio in Peckham, where she teaches the same techniques that she uses in her own work. Each workshop is an opportunity to connect with the meditative nature of tapestry weaving, to slow down and enjoy working with your hands.
