JANE STOCK

I enjoy working with a range of fabrics and media but I am particularly drawn to materials and textiles that have had a previous life and show signs of wear and repair.  Different processes include hand stitch, printing and dyeing.  Indigo is a favourite and I am fascinated by the various patterns and effects that can be produced. 

My hand stitching is all about mark making rather than precision or regularity. 

Textile history, from samplers, to the machinery and processes of large mills their pattern and sample archives, are of particular interest.
