Textile artist Priscilla Edwards is holding a two day workshop this weekend at Harpers Mill in Lancaster. Priscilla has over 20 years of teaching practice and will be sharing drawing with stitch at the new studio.
This is a workshop for anyone who would like to explore a mixed media approach to stitched textiles and develop new ideas.Priscilla has been creating contemporary stitched mixed media pieces in 2D and 3D since completing her degree in Embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University in 1997.
She draws her inspiration from a variety of sources exploring the concept of identity, memory and nostalgia.
These themes underpin a range of areas within her work including freelance designs for greeting cards, fashion/interior fabrics and wallpaper exporting to Japan, Europe and the U.S.A.
