Spools of dyed silk ready for weaving | Dorset Commercial Photographer | Thomas Whild Photography

We start this series of portraits with Debby Kirby. Debby is a silk weaver who works out of Walford Mill in Wimborne, where she is one of several of the makers in residence.

Debby makes a variety of scarves and accessories, made from fine silk, all custom dyed by Debby herself to allow her to create her designs. Debby also makes wall hangings and framed pieces which combine screen printed paper and photography woven through silk to create unique and beautiful decorative pieces. Check out more of Debby’s work at her website.
