category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Scotland   

I am an artist, a collector of “treasures” and a compulsive hand stitcher. I combine these passions in making one-off wall pieces that spark a sense of nostalgia. I use materials with a history – the kind of things that lie forgotten in the bottoms of drawers. Commonplace items that were used by our mothers […]

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Wales   

My work as an artist has evolved from my experiences as a child, within the South Wales valleys. I have explored traditional stitch and print within my work, reflecting on the working class values of community life with its humour and warmth. My work also reflects on the women who were in my life as […]

Alison Whateley Design

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South West   

I am a self taught textile artist living and working in Mid Devon. I have always been creative, and when I was younger I enjoyed both watercolour painting and sewing, so I have now combined the two to create beautiful individual pieces of textile art inspired by the natural world around me.

Colour and texture play a big part in my work, and I am always experimenting with new combinations. I use appliqué, free motion machine embroidery and some hand stitching to produce my pieces that each  evolve as I go along, therefore no two pieces are exactly the same.

I source all sorts of new and vintage fabrics, lace, buttons and beads to use in my work, and particularly love using vintage lace in my pieces.

Amanda Barnes Textile Artist

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Scotland   

I make small creatures using lots of different fabrics and try to give each one it’s own character using small accessories, props or clothes. They are purely for decorative purposes.

Each piece I make is totally unique. Even if I’m using the same fabric or accessories, each small creation is absolutely unique. My latest mice ‘The Inquisitives’ are all paired with a preloved, vintage or antique item such as a wooden cotton reel, antique thimbles or piece of antique lace.

I love to use Harris Tweed, Velvet and Liberty Fabrics for my small creatures and it’s especially important for me to use either British fabrics or recycled and vintage pieces to give them that extra special touch.

Anna Blair

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

I work with fabrics, predominately silks, to create wall art and accessories. My work is influenced by details found within the natural world. Lichen and flowers are my main source of inspiration, with their subtle but intricate details reflecting empathetically the textures I create within my work.
I combine the use of traditional shibori techniques and incorporate a modern twist to create unique items. Shibori is the Japanese technique of binding fabric to create a resist when dyeing or to add a three dimensional texture to fabric. The modern influence is also seen in the process I use for adding colour. I use digitally printed fabric using designs created from my own photographs of plants and flowers

Annabel Perrin

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

I am a surface pattern designer, specialising in the creation of unique print designs, which I apply to home textiles/accessories. I have a First Class Honours degree in Textiles and completed a Masters in Design in 2012. Following this, I developed my own brand and launched my first collection.

I create designs using a combination of hand drawn imagery and CAD. They are then digitally printed onto 100% heavy weight cotton in the UK. This printed fabric is sold by the metre or used to create hand-made home accessories, including cushions and limited edition, re-upholstered chairs. Buildings, maps and destinations inspire me. I love the aesthetic appearance of architecture. My enthusiasm about mid century design, geometrics and vintage products also influences my design process.

AnnaFraenkelTextiles

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I make kitchen textiles products and cushions. I’ve been a maker all my life – from a child if I wanted something I was encouraged to make it. My products are designed on paper, from which fabrics are printed and then I make the final pieces myself. They come initially from an idea of producing a range of pictures that could have been produced by famous artists. Cushions offer a natural way to present them, but I also have a passion for big aprons, like catering aprons but with designs that make them fun or as elegant as the apron itself will make people look. Wearing a big apron makes you feel ready for work, like you can achieve the world!

My name is Anya and I’m the creator & curator of a compendium of curious creatures made in wire and reclaimed materials. I moved to Hereford in 1994 to study an HND in Design Crafts and never quite managed to leave the beautiful landscape I found here. I am a twister of wire and words […]
