Christabel Balfour

Christabel Balfour is a London-based tapestry and rug weaver. She specialises in large-scale woven works which explore geometric form using symbolic colour and subtle textures. For London Design Fair Christabel will be demonstrating the process of weaving on an upright rug loom. She will be showing a variety of different rug weaving techniques, including flat-woven tapestry, rya knotting and soumak.

Christabel Balfour studied at Camberwell College of Arts and the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. She set up her weaving studio in 2015 and since then has developed a distinctive style which combines traditional craft techniques with a contemporary vision. She has worked with notable interior designer studios including Chan & Eayrs and Studio Ashby, and collaborated with the Barbican and Tate. She runs in-depth rug weaving workshops in her East London studio, and is currently preparing for a solo show of her woven work in 2020.
