2017 is a bumper year for talented Textiles designers at The Contemporary Craft Festival with around 35 makers ready to exhibit their work for you to see.

We’re also really excited to be welcoming internationally renowned textile artist Dionne Swift who will be sharing her methods with us through demonstrations throughout the weekend.
With a passion for print and a life time love of beautiful fabrics, Helen has designed and created a collection of special handmade pieces for the home.
From their studio close to the hills of Dartmoor, Grace and Favour Home design and make a stunning range of homewares and gifts from reworked maps, postcards, tickets an other vintage items.
New in this year’s StartUP tent, Kate Whitehead will be exhibiting her reworked textile designs. Inspired by forgotten, often overlooked fabrics, Kate’s designs specialise in bringing simple materials back to life…  
Machine knitter and felt maker Prilly Lewis designs and makes beautiful clothing, home ware and accessories using British lambswool creating
individual and quirky designs…

Next my work will be on show to view at 50 George Street  Open Houses,  The Saltaire Arts Trail 2017

Bristol Artisan

Enjoyed catching up with #hothousealumni @Thebristolartisan. Stopped in Glastonbury to walk up to the Tor after a long sunny weekend in Bristol, time to be peaceful and to reflect on my creative journey,  then a cup of coffee and a walk on the beach in weston-super- mare.

Embroiders Guild

What a delight it was to teach indigo dyeing and hand weave
to the Embroiders Guild North Wales branch at the weekend.
The Guild welcomes everyone with an interest in any area of embroidery and we are proud to be recognised as a voice for raising the profile of textile and stitched art.
No longer just the domain of fabric and thread, textile art now embraces (amongst other things) the world of mixed media, dyeing with rust and plants, print and videos. We hold a historical collection, aid research, support students of all ages, and publish “Stitch” and “Embroidery” magazines. Members around the country are involved at whatever level they choose in meeting regularly to listen to speakers, often in their local Branch, attend workshops, learn new skills or build on existing ones, and participate in local, regional and national projects.
Members are encouraged to participate in any area of interest at any level, whether young people learning to stitch, a professional artist extending the boundaries of textile art, or someone who simply appreciates fabric and thread. We believe that textiles are as relevant today as they have ever been, and there is a place for both the traditional, fine hand stitching alongside the bold and contemporary machine work.
The Embroiderers’ Guild exists to build awareness of stitch and textile art. We educate, encourage, inspire, and promote the achievement of excellence. This is a continuing journey. You may enter at any point.
We hope to show you that even though we are called a “Guild” there is nothing stuffy or exclusive about us! We welcome beginners and those who already stitch or are interested in textiles and textile art.
