About Sonia Bidwell
I now live near Skibbereen but I was born in Cornwall, and spent most of my childhood on a boat except when I was at Boarding school. After many years , many jobs, marriage with two daughters, I moved to The Isle of Skye in 1983 Here I went back to country life, crofting with sheep and cattle whilst my husband had a proper job !. My sheep were a rare breed with fine long wool. I sold direct to spinners and taught myself to spin. Then i started making knitted and woven wall hangings, from this developed my art as it is now . Using mainly poetry and folk tales as my inspiration I weave on a metal grid and build up a complex collage of symbolic objects . I prefer solo interactive exhibitions with a definite theme . My biggest and ongoing project is the poetry of WW1
