Louise Claire has attracted the interest of companies who have requested a bespoke service of designing exclusive hand made products featuring their well-known building." Louise Claire.
Today at Birmingham and District WSD Guild's meeting Louise Claire gave a talk and shared her textile work and designs with us. I am not an embroiderer and I have never done any screen printing. Also my dyeing knowledge is limited. I had much to learn. Louise Claire works from her own drawings. She works predomimantly on buildings both in the UK and abroad. She draws sections of buildings and creates a 'Motif' to reproduce in print and dye, using various materials, colours and embroidery techniques. If you click the link above you will see a range of her work that I would find difficult to explain. It is interesting to look at Design 'scrapbooks' and see how other people get their ideas developed from start to finish.
It is always good to chat to other guild members about the projects they are working on and I also managed to work on a pair of Crocheted Socks I am currently making. I hope to show you at least one finished sock soon!
