Name: Claire Wellesley-Smith
5 words to describe your practice: Naturally-dyed hand-stitched textiles.
13 Bromley Road
Shipley, BD18 4DS
3rd - 5th of June 2012
My open house and studio will also include the work of textile artist Hannah Lamb and woodturner Hugh Leishman. There will be natural dyeing demonstrations at 2pm each day and tea and home-made cake available too.
The most unusual thing about my work is...
I grow traditional dye plants then process them to dye the fabric and threads I stitch with.
3 biggest inspirations on your practice:Traditional techniques, teaching, and sharing sustainable practices.
