Mixed Media

Several of the artists we talk to work with mixed media techniques which just happen to encompass textiles. Fabric is the most versatile of materials for artists and this section reveals the myriad of ways it can be manipulated, embellished and turned into something entirely new. We explore print techniques (screen-printing and digital print to name two), as well as the use of found objects, photography, embroidery stitches (both machine and hand) and a range of unusual and unique materials such as metal and wood.
