Lorna creates handmade sculptural textiles for home soft furnishings from her Midlands-based studio. Because all pieces are made in-house, it is easy for her to adapt designs and colours that have already been produced to match the specific requirements of the clients. Lorna also works on larger-scale installations for hotels, shop decor and interior designers, offering a unique and completely bespoke service.
