Textiles Designer & Weaver

IMG_7091.jpg

Bella Nunn is a textiles designer, living in Norfolk, specialising in weave and natural dyes. Sustainability is an important drive in her work; developing material innovations and looking back to historical influences, to discover environmentally friendly fabrics. Bella works in a range of biodegradable and natural materials; sourcing fibres that can improve her environmental impact. With a First Class BA (hons) degree in Textile Design at Norwich University of the Arts, she hopes to continue designing and manufacturing for woven interiors.

Her studio practice includes weaving tactile cloth, using a rigid heddle loom and a 16 shaft Harris loom. Research has moved her towards using natural yarns, such as linen, British wool, bamboo etc. combined with natural dyes, including seaweed, madder, rust and indigo. As well as weave, she has experience in digital print designs, screen print and knitting, taking inspiration from her expressive drawings and landscape photography.
