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. 

I prefer to work in colours that are either neutrals or shades of blue. 

My hand stitching is all about mark making rather than precision or regularity.  I believe a lot can be achieved with straight stitch.

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