A Celebration of Textiles at One Craft Gallery

One Craft Gallery is currently a wonderful celebration of the world of textiles.

Throughout the summer months of June and July, we are showing the work of two new guest artists; machine knitted designs by Higgi Designs and woven silk art by Nazha Seehawer-Hewawasama. More information about each of our guests can be found on a separate post.

The window display is full of gorgeous textures, soft colours and intricate patterns and inside the gallery we have a lovely selection of textiles, clothes and millinery to chose from.

Our regular textile members have also been busy creating new work for the summer and you will find the following work in One Craft at the moment:

Lesley Hill – Lesley creates a very popular range of soft jersey children’s clothing as well as lightweight women’s batik tunics, felted bags and hats and her ever growing collection of needle felted animals

Buffy Fletcher – Buffy creates a wonderful range of machine knit clothing and accessories with a choice of women’s lightweight jumpers, cardigans and knitwear, scarves and adorable children’s clothing.

Lizzie Oliva – our milliner Lizzie has a range of summer hats, caps and sun hats made from linens and cottons to suit every head! Not just hats though, Lizzie has also been creating some wonderful statement cushions using velvets and tweeds.

Chris Rice – Chris is a handspinner and knitter and creates all of her knitwear from scratch by spinning and dying her own yarns and creating beautiful one off items of clothing. Shown below is one of Chris’ latest one-off designs – this stylish, three quarter length sleeve knitted jacked is wonderful!
