Lovely Owls crafted using fabrics found by rummaging through my collection. Craft provides the feeling of satisfaction in using thought to put together something from pieces to product... in this case lovely fabric and buttons to owl.
"It is not enough to know your craft - you have to have feeling. Science is all very well, but for us imagination is worth far more." Edouard Manet
My design journey began with Printed Textiles, exploring surface pattern design. Following from this I developed an interest in the concept of textile sustainability and recycling. I have recently completed my MA study exploring how historic textile processes can benefit our future through sustainable design. I am training to be a teacher in Art and Design to share my knowledge and fulfil the concept of living arts. This blog aims to explore what inspires me and to encourage my development as a practioner.
