Laura Cameron - Lost In The Wood
Caernarfon, North Wales, Wales
I am a textile artist using crochet and needle felting to create colourful pieces which reflect my fascination with the natural world, anatomy and the hidden interior. My range of medically-inspired brooches and wall art are intended as an engaging way of taking things which are usually hidden and showing them to be vibrant and visible. I also enjoy subverting the expectations that usually accompany woolly crafts. My work aims to challenge the artificial distinction between art and craft, in a playful manner, as well as being a place where art and science meet.

Mairi Brown
Edinburgh, Scotland
My work focuses on taking the smallest detail of flora and fauna under a microscope, examining how it can be realised in rich colours which catch the light, and transforming it into a beautiful portable or wearable work of art using the technique of free machine embroidery. The process of drawing and painting with thread, the build up of stitched texture on fabric to create an image never stops being a joy. Each piece becomes a little treasure reminding the wearer or owner of how precious our wildlife is and how surprising colours can be found in everyday creatures and plants.

Marna Lunt
Yarm, North East England
I am a fine artist that has changed mediums from oil paint to threads, inspired by the landscape from my childhood home on the North Yorkshire Moors. I use thread in thick layers as though it was paint, building texture and colour with wool, linen, cotton both old and new, hand dyed and modern synthetic colours. I have a unique style of thread painting not based on traditional silk shading but on my own feeling about depth and my years of training as a painter. It is important to me to create the right feeling both mentally with a piece but also physically. I like a piece to feel weighty in the hand, to have presence and substance. I want people to feel a need to reached out and touch it. All work starts as a drawing and is stitched entirely by hand, no machines are used.

Ruth Harries Textiles
Cardiff Wales
My work encompasses many themes and mediums; often inspired by my identity and observations from my surroundings. The recent lockdown period has encouraged a body of work with an appreciation and development of rich studies on the theme of the garden and flora. It looks at the diverse qualities of mark making produced by drawing and painting considered through stitch and fabric. It is an appreciation of the quality of thread and the medium. Often working directly; letting it grow and develop intuitively and spontaneously, I use hand and free machine stitch, as well as fabric collage, where dense layers are built up, achieving subtle variations in tone in a free and expressive way.

Skippity Hop Creatures
Aberlady, East Lothian
I have always enjoyed working 3 dimensionally and studied Sculpture at Art School where I worked on life size figures along with plasticine maquettes, similar to the scale I work on now. As a textile artist I create animal like creatures dressed in human attire. I work with recycled and shop bought fabric and find cloth can be a versatile and colourful material to work with. Most of my work is free standing and is sold as display art, aimed at the adult customer. My work can be viewed via my website, Etsy and Instagram.
