This creative blog contains the "words" of Shani - an creative processor of textiles, paint, paper, music and general mayhem..... You will find contained within a mixture of ideas, projects on the go, rants and general communication with the world or not - as the case may be.

Shani is a mother of four adult children; the youngest – Toby - was involved in a very serious accident in 2005, which resulted in profound brain-injury. He is now 21 and receiving intense rehabilitation therapy. She also has four beautiful grandchildren and a life-long friend (who has played different roles during the different stages (literally) of her life).

Oh and not forgetting "Mad Dog" Murphy to keep her on her toes.

Shani is a handspinning, dyer and weaver, who produces textiles with a "twist". DyeVerse, her company, runs courses in colour, writing and textile construction, beginner through to experience, located in Wales and the South West.

Please feel free to add your thoughts constructively to any of the posts.. or email Shani directly if you want to find out more or discuss projects.
