About Me

 

My name's Sally Stone and I create contemporary jewellery & textiles out of constructed fabric, buttons & other materials. Using things unusually, working at different scales, experimenting, upcycling & recycling are all part of what I like to do.

And when I’m not doing that, I’m probably yarnstorming or planning the next yarnstorming project.  These community art projects that I design, deliver and install take the form of outdoor textile artworks, usually on specific themes, often raising money for charity.

Or I might be blogging about what I’ve seen, what I’m doing or what I’ve learnt, including posts on exhibitions, workshops, art and installations.

But I could be running a creative workshop or delivering a talk.

And in case you didn’t know I’m an extreme knitter and a secret haiku writer.

For me, it's all about making, connecting, learning and having fun in a colourful world.  I’m lucky enough to do it all from the beautiful city of York.  And it all began with Grandma’s button tin and a love of colour and texture...
