Geckostrands is a textile studio creating eco dyed wool and cashmere wearables.
Geckostrands has grown out of a passion for Australian eucalypts and textiles. The process of natural eco dyeing and my art teaching experience became the basis to create geckostrands. I create scarves, and hand knitted art objects that can be worn. Collecting leaves in Tasmania’s Huon Valley, where my studio is situated, using the water, the seasons and collecting the relics of past times. The scarves emerge from a process of design, placement and brewing. The alchemy of nature produces fine wool and cashmere objects of desire.
