What I’m All About
I’m Wendy Hartley, owner of EarthMother Designs Studio, and am handspinner and weaver based in country NSW, Australia. My artwork, yarns and handmade items are made with love in my farmhouse studio.
I love natural fibres and the ancient crafts of handspinning yarns and weaving cloth, starting from raw fleece grown by our animals, and using my hands and heart to make clothing that expresses and adorns the self. My spirit is inspired by bright colours and texture, and I explore intuitive and expressive styles of spinning and weaving as well as more traditional structures and techniques. Nature, colour and texture are my main inspirations.
My interests in healing work, mindful creativity and connection to the earth are combined with spinning and weaving to create pieces with a beautiful energetic medicine to enhance wellbeing for the wearer when incorporated into a garment or home decor item.
Every creative piece made with my hands is infused with positive intention and energy, to bring love, nurturing and comfort into the lives of those who choose to buy them, or receive them as gifts into their homes. These positive energies can be powerful tools of change in people’s lives and contribute to their sense of health and wellness.
Welcome, and thanks for visiting my online studio!
