Initially renting studio space to develop her practice, Merissa has also been a full time member of the team at Golspie Gallery. She is currently weaving overseas and we look forward to seeing how this inspires her future work. However, she left us well stocked with lots of lovely wooly snugglie-ness for autum, winter 2018.

With a 1st class Hons in Textile Design, from Glasgow School of Art, she designs and makes simply lovely handwoven homewares and accessories. Merissa’s current creations and her collection of weaving looms, can also be seen in the gallery.

Our oldest loom was carpenter made in Sweden back in 1910. At one stage it was transported on the roof of a Volvo from Sweden to Brighton. Now over 100 years old, it’s a real pleasure to have it up and working in the gallery. You have to wonder just how far all the cloth woven on it over the past century would reach - perhaps all the way back to Scandinavia!

For something truly special, you could work with Merissa to design and commission your very own piece of heritage hand weave.
