Diane Shaw is a designer-maker currently listed on the UK Crafts Council National Register of Makers and in the Homes and Gardens Magazine Directory.  Working solely with silk, her craft incorporates designing, hand weaving, embroidery, and sewing to create one-off items her workshop in West Sussex, England.


INTERIORS  Initially trained as a maker of silk lampshades at the excellent 'A Shade Above' workshop in Brighton, Diane was inspired to'recycle' the silk remnants of this trade to create one-off items using the shapes and colours of the individual fabric pieces themselves as a design starting point.  

Diane Shaw's bespoke 100% silk interior pieces are completely unique in that they do not form part of a 'collection';  every item is individually and elegantly fashioned by hand to the highest standard of workmanship, using only the finest silk fabrics, silk threads and trimmings. 

Having a fascination for silk fabric also inspired Diane to produce her own small pieces woven on a small table loom, using both vintage and new silk yarn sourced from around the world.

The main design emphasis is on clean lines, and a neat, tailored feel that sculputures sumptuous silks into folds, pleats and soft geometric shapes.  Luxuriant dupions are layered with cool, crisp silk linens; royal taffetas with organza, and high-tech silk textiles from international design houses are complimented by simple hand woven natural silks.
