India Flint – Meet the Artist

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the Eco-printed, Sustainable Textile Art of India Flint.

This beautiful leaf printed art started life as discarded cotton cloth, pre-loved garments and old mildewed blankets.  Each piece has been patched, darned, cut up and re-stitched.

Denise Watts – Meet the Artist

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the contemporary bobbin lace of Denise Watts.

Denise hand crafts each paper mâché doll. She then embellishes them in turn, with hand embroidery, vintage cloth & handmade bobbin lace.

Her current collection of work is called “The Little Woman”. It touches on the issues, emotions and traumas that women have experienced throughout history.
