Creative Textile + [workshop]

Angie Hughes

Recently we were lucky enough to be taught first hand by the wonderful textile artist Angie Hughes!

Angie book Stitch, Cloth, Paper and Paint is one of our favourite mixed media textile books and we often find ourselves diving in, in source of inspiration.

Angie's art is inspired by many themes but particularly poetry and text, she will also often draw ideas from the natural world. From drawings and photography Angie develops her work to create enchanting textile pieces, that evoke emotions in the viewer.

In her most recent work Angie has been exploring velvets, organzas and foils. Her work often looks magical with her use of metallic threads and glittering foils. To learn more about Angie, visit her website.

Angie shares her inspirations with you and demos many of her favoured techniques in the workshop DVD Inspired Velvet. Read more...
