Holloway believes that walking lends itself to the act of weaving, the rhythmic movement of putting one foot in front of the other corresponds to the rhythmic traverses of the shuttle going back and forth. The progress of a thread can be followed as it travels across the warp on the loom, back and forth, under and over, slowly revealing a bigger picture: in the making of cloth the physical act of walking can be made material. She also believes that woven cloth can be embedded with narrative. Her London walks frequently take in the River Lea and the Thames estuary.
