A little textile inspiration from my
YouTube ‘Meet the Artist’ Collection. Today it features the detailed hand embroidery by artist Claire Edwards.
In this YouTube, Claire shares and talks about her latest collection which is based on the coral oceans. She also explains how she created her iconic ‘Rising from the Ashes’ couture dress. Claire’s work has been acknowledged with a number of awards. These include the prestigious award from
Hand & Lock plus two awards from the Bradford Textile Society.
Claire is a member of
The Society for Embroidered Work.
