Sew exciting!

This blog is about my work and the textile artwork and projects I will be working on. I am a textile artist and illustrator; I create free-motion embroidered artwork using a domestic sewing machine.

A bit about me…

I studied a BSc Hons in Textile Design at Huddersfield University and specialized in Woven Design. When I left university I became self-employed for several years and designed, wove and sold my fabrics. Later, I began a career in Further Education, teaching art and textiles, whilst still creating my own work.

I love exploring new textile techniques and ideas, and in 2018 I began to embroider my watercolour studies onto fabric. I decided to leave teaching after nearly twenty years to focus on creating and selling my textile art.

What do I create?

As I mentioned, my work is free-motion embroidered (there’s a definition of the technique in the next post). The illustrations are of architecture, landscapes and portraits of animals and people. I really like illustrating old buildings and have created a few pieces of Churches in and near my village of Bishampton in Worcestershire. I love working on commissioned pieces.

I still weave and enjoy working on my tapestry loom.

Did I mention workshops?

I haven’t entirely left my teaching behind. I still run workshops in printmaking, embroidery, felt-making, and more recently, tapestry. Information about the latest workshops will be posted on the latest blog and listed on my website. http://www.michelleflint.com
