What is TextileArtist.org all about?
We want TextileArtist.org to be an invaluable resource for stitch artists and practitioners working with mixed media techniques, including embroidery, print, crochet, appliqué and quilting. But we also want to include those of you who aren’t necessarily artists yourselves, but have a passion for the diverse medium of textile art or enjoy experimenting with fiber and fabrics as a hobby.
TextileArtist.org is a place to be inspired by some of the world’s most prolific textile and stitch artists; learn from the best, find out what’s going on in the world of textiles and promote events, exhibitions, talks, workshops and book releases.
Below is some of our top content to get you started.
We launched the site with a series of interviews and contributions from some of the world’s leading textile and fiber artists. These have proved so popular that they have become the heart of TextileArtist.org.
Discover the stories of renowned textile artists. Hear about their background and early influences and what led them to experimenting with stitch, fabric and fiber. Learn about what or who inspires them today. Gain an insight into their practises, chosen medium and the textile art techniques they use to create their work.
These are some of our favourite and most inspirational interviews.
