Macramè, weave and fibre artist , Northern Ireland
My name is Niamh and I am the face behind Rocco & Rose. I studied textile art and design in university where I mostly specialised in loom weaving. After having two babies I started creating macramè wall hangings and dreamcatchers to keep up some creativity and have chill time in the evenings. I liked being able to work at them standing up (compared to being behind the loom) and be more free to be able to run and attend the little ones when needed....and so began Rocco & Rose.
I have my studio at home and balance myself between creating and minding my two full time. I work with a variety of textile techniques macramé, hand and loom weaving (hopefully will be making more of an appearance in my work soon), and yarn dyeing. I am still on a journey of discovery, exploration and learning and I hope you enjoy having a look through the site and follow us as we grow.
