Meet the Artist – Marian Jazmik

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the embroidered art of Marian Jazmik.

Marian’s work is very experimental and all her materials are sourced from discarded, reusable waste.

She stitches layer upon layer of heat treated synthetic fabrics to make some amazing textures – then embellishes these surfaces with found objects and embroidery.

Marian explains her creative processes in the video below.

Meet the Artist – Denise Watts

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.
