Barley Massey

Barley Massey Barley is a designer who founded Fabrications as an independent gallery, shop and studio dedicated to all aspects of contemporary textiles and design, but with a particular interest in recycling and Eco design. The gallery is in a refurbished derelict shop on Broadway Market in Hackney, East London. With their Rethink Rubbish craft kits they
aim to pass on different craft techniques and show that you can create beautiful / interesting items out of waste.

"Barley Massey is a restlessly quirky and inventive textile designer. Interested in weaving, stitching and surface manipulation of any material you care to mention." (Time Out)
