Thea is a Somerset based Textile Designer with a specialism in knitted textiles and knitwear design. After working in the fashion industry for a number of years, Thea has returned to her roots to design her own pieces inspired by the textures and colours of the fabulous Somerset countryside and coast. Working from her home studio nestled between the Quantock and Exmoor hills, Thea produces unique, colourful and patterned designs for interiors, accessories and fashion.
As a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust Scholar, Thea has developed her skills on the interiors side of the business and has branched out into upholstery. She restores preloved interior pieces by putting fun and quirky twists on the traditional craft and including her knitted textile designs.
Thea also lectures at the local college teaching Art and Textile Fashion. Her passion for teaching has led Thea to offer a range of workshops in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Students can learn new textile skills and processes, or build on the skills they already have.
