Feels Like Home is part of the ‘Well-Being’ series which explores the question: 'What does wellbeing feel like in our environment?'
By spending intentional time in the ancient woodlands around her home, Saskia used the regular practice of ‘forest-bathing’ to reconnect with her senses.
Using natural materials, a subtle palette, swathes of delicate yarns and ethereal woven structures, Saskia then sensitively interpreted the delicate balance of personal and environmental wellbeing.
Based in: Stokenchurch
Saskia Saunders creates handwoven sculptures for those who seek a natural sanctuary in their lives. Her work explores the tranquillity, wellbeing and freedom felt when spending time in woodlands and forests.
Using plant-based materials such as paper, hemp and linen, she utilises the structural qualities of the yarns to craft minimal, textural pieces.
By bringing the ancient craft of weaving into contemporary form, she is addressing our way of life in the Anthropocene. Saskia’s work shares a vision of striving for a positive future for ourselves and our world, by living more sustainably, in harmony with nature.
Saskia exhibits her work worldwide with galleries such as Amelie in Paris, Contemporary Crafts Centre in Hong Kong and Ruup & Form in London. She studied weaving at the University of Brighton and lives and works in Buckinghamshire, England.
