Almha’s work looks at the symbolic and emotive qualities of textiles and craft and how this relates to heritage, relationships and our environment. She has an intuitive and process driven approach to making and explores her conceptual thinking through colour, pattern and materiality. She is interested in the role textiles play in the intersection between art & design and function & decoration.
