Bindy Barclay

Bindy lives and works on the rural outskirts of Otautahi/Christchurch, Aotearoa/New Zealand. She has melded her interests in heritage with her love of textiles and interior design.

Trained in textile design, at the then Wellington Polytechnic,  she has worked as a librarian and information designer, children’s media advocate, and researcher.  After studying sociology and history, Bindy’s masters thesis explored the processes of design work.

In recent years she has followed her fascinations around the botanic influences on 18th and 19th-century decorative art.

Travel, at home or further, is her joy… heritage houses her favourite destinations.
