My name is Cally Booker and I am a handweaver living and working in Dundee on the east coast of Scotland.
I design and make one-off scarves, wraps and other textiles in my studio on the top floor of Meadow Mill. The fibres I use include merino wool, silk, cotton, bamboo and cashmere, and my speciality is combining fibres and colours for rich visual and textural effects.
My inspiration ranges from the art of Paul Klee, through the stained glass windows of Dundee’s Cathedral Church of St Paul, to the graffiti in the skatepark. Every textile I create is unique, and I am happy to accept commissions.
I have also contributed articles to the Complex Weavers Journal, WeaveZine and WeaveCast. From 2008 to 2013 I served on the Editorial Committee of the Journal for Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, including time as Weaving Features Editor in 2009-11 and as Chair in 2011-12.
