Wychbury Designs

We’re pleased to announce that  Paula Perrins of Wychbury Designs will be at Design@HEART again next week.  Here she is talking a little bit about what makes her tick:

I’m a textile artist based in Bingley and I make jewellery, accessories and artwork inspired by my love of sewing.

I use hand stitched embroidery, patchwork and visible mending techniqes to make tactile, wearable pieces designed to be useful as well as attractive. I love to work in miniature and often incorporate tiny pincushions into my brooches and rings.

I practice an almost compulsive adherance to the old adage “Waste not, want not” and use up even the tiniest scraps of cloth and never throw anything away.

I work mainly with recycled and gifted fabrics and I try to continue the stories of well loved textiles with my own stitches. I am a proud member of Airedale Branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild and receive knowledge and stories in abundance from my fellow stitchers. I try to pass on a little of our shared belief that “Sewing Mends the Soul” though my pieces.
