Profile: Win Currie

Win is one of the founder members of the Marlborough Guild and Marlborough Tapestry Weavers.

Though active in the Tapestry group, Win is best known for her apparently open-weave scarves in fine merino, alpaca and silk. Featherlight, soft and tearfully elegant, her pieces appear loosely woven, but they are designed intelligently and finished heartily. She also weaves smaller casual, unisex scarves.

Some of Win's work can be seen here and here.
