FRAN REILLY

Textile Art

I am a contemporary textile artist based in the Cotswolds, UK.  I recycle vintage fabrics into unique one off pieces of art using free motion machine embroidery and appliqué.   I also love to dye fabrics with natural plant dyes to give the backgrounds to my work a vibrant and individual quality.

 

I teach workshops in Natural Dyeing, Indigo Dyeing and Shibori Stitch.  These workshops are suitable for anyone interested in exploring textiles, natural dyes, creativity, or just a fun day out with friends.

If you have some precious fabrics hiding in the loft and would like to bring them out into the light - let me help you make a new piece of art to bring those memories alive.

"I would highly recommend the workshop to anyone interested in textiles as the results are achievable, unique and wonderfully wearable."
"A great worksh​op.  A lovely creative day and 'the reveal' the next day is so exciting!  Highly recommended."
"I just wanted to say what a great day I had yesterday. You were both such warm hosts. I am a real beginner but I felt very relaxed and at ease.  The format was great. The food was lovely."
