Suzanne’s company, ArrooDesigns, produces luxury textile accessories including scarves, wraps, brooches and bags designed and made in a in garden shed studio surrounded by greenery, wildflowers and birdsong.
The work is made using traditional felting techniques, mainly nuno-felting which combines extra fine Merino Wool with silk chiffon or silk georgette and silk fibre. The products are striking, wearable pieces that work for both casual and more formal occasions, providing a touch of luxury.
Her inspiration for colour and pattern is the natural world and botanical imagery as well as vintage textiles.
Suzanne lives and works in Derry, Northern Ireland and is a founding member of Number 19 Craft and Design, a collective that has over twenty members. Formerly, she had a career as a curator of contemporary exhibitions and lecturer in art history.
