18th January 2017: Laura Edgar- Textile Artist
Laura talked about her textile journey, how she was encouraged from an early age to draw, paint, knit and crochet. Inspired by nature and the beach landscapes of her local area Whitley Bay, she started painting and then transitioned to “painting with textiles”. She uses a variety of techniques, painting, stitching and embellishing; either straight on to canvas or fabric. Using thread to “sketch” she outlines elements of her pictures. A “gatherer” she hunts out unusual / vintage fabrics to incorporate in her work.
