Guest Maker: Heather Everitt - Textiles - Sat 01 Apr 2017 -Tue 30 May 2017
Craft Shop. Open daily.
Our special Guest Maker this month creates unique and beautifully crafted textile based work.
Heather’s butterflies and moths are embroidered and appliqued using a Freeform machine embroidery technique. Most sculptures are British species and they are mounted or backed against maps of where their habitat would naturally be. There are a few world species denotable by the different background maps.
Pieces are mounted in specially made boxes provided for each individual butterfly or set of butterflies and moths.
Heather has recently had her work selected for sale at Liberty, London and uses Liberty print for some of her sculptures. All other fabrics used are silk.
Boxes are provided for all pieces.
