Catherine Peddel

I love creating textile art which has special significance to me and my past. I first embarked on this medium some years ago when I gave my sister a special housewarming present.

I dyed old linen sheets that belonged to our Grandmother inspiration for the piece came from our father’s garden.

I loved making this and so the ideas have continued and evolved. I use a variety of printing techniques to create the background. Following this the fabric is then carefully selected and cut into the shapes I create, usually from nature. Then using multi-coloured threads, these are machine stitched into place.

I now exhibit and sell my work in a number of UK galleries
