Introducing Stephanie Redfern!

We're all absolutely thrilled to have the fabulous Stephanie Redfern join us for our exhibition in Leamington. You may already know Steph from the many exhibitions she's been in around the UK and from shows such as Festival of Quilts. You can see some of her work right now at Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch.

Here's a little excerpt from Steph's website which you can see yourself by clicking this link:

"A ceramist for 20 years after leaving art college, I began working in textiles and mixed media in 2003.
My textile work starts with an interface of design and material. I paint and print many of my own fabrics, and construct my work using collage techniques, machine and hand stitch, in my small home studio. ​Many of the materials I use are recycled, particularly fabrics, plastics and papers.

To these practices I have gradually added more media, enjoying the use of paper, found objects, leaves, pods, bark, wood, recycled plastics, metal, and ceramics. My work is based upon the natural world and landscape.  The things that happen in my art are a combination of personality, experience, life and the patterns and spaces that move me.

My work consists of artist's books, for which I also write the text,  and mixed media wall hung textile work, both framed and unframed. 

I have published four books. Into the Cacao Grove, The Stone Bird and Shadow and Light are facsimiles of three of my mixed media artist’s books, and Thoughts, which is a collection of texts used in my artist's books. They are all now sold out, but I have now written a book for Search Press. It is called Stitched Textiles: Nature, and explores how my work is inspired by the natural world.
​Available from Search Press, Amazon and bookshops.
