Nicholas Ozanne

Leto & Ariadne
I am a handweaver working on manual woodframed looms under the studio label of ‘Leto & Ariadne’ (founded in London in 2009). All parts of the process are done by hand in the studio, from the initial design and winding of the warp, through to the hand finishing. 
I create tactile wearable pieces in natural fibres such as silk and lambswool that are meant to be used, and combine classic style with a deep sense of colour. My scarves were described by an article in Selvedge Magazine as allowing the wearer to ‘reconnect with a lost sense of Englishness’.

The inspiration for my work is based upon diverse sources from a favourite book to my memories of school and is a constantly evolving journey.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 86 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
