Hi there my name is Charmaine Harvey and the face behind Pomeffect. I am a self taught fibre artist and for the last 3 years I've been growing my craft, from pompoms to weaving. I started back in 2016 when I wanted some decorations for Halloween and Christmas something a little different. I couldn't find anything so I decided to make my own. Pompom garlands to wreaths, baubles to fairy lights, and my family and friends then wanted some. I made a social media page and then I started to get messages of people wanting to order with me. I have since then taught myself how to weave, a century old technique that's been passed down through many generations. I commissioned wall hangings for people's homes they get to choose the colour palette they give me ideas on how they would like the finished piece to look. Then I go away and either sketch or just freestyle sometimes the best creativity comes from just playing with the fibre and seeing what happens.
