As a family while we are on country walks we look for seedheads, grasses, feathers and anything else we can find because I use these as part of my design process. I love to add mono printing to my artworks (my kids also love to have a go!). I have put together a leaflet on how to mono print, I am a big believer that spending time being creative is good for our wellbeing (it has worked for me!), also a fun activity for yourself or the kids.
With every order over £20 I will be sending out one of these leaflets so you can have a go too, enjoy!
Each design has the unique style of textile artist Ellie Hipkin starting as an original textile artwork by mixing painting and mono printing with embroidery. Inspired by the Sussex landscape, coastline and the changing colours of the seasons, along with the native flora that grows wild through the pebbles and field verges.
