Scenes inspired by the Seashore (using Evolon) by – Alysn Midgelow-Marsden

by Ruth Morgan | July 31, 2020 | Posted in Evolon

Alysn is an accomplished freelance fine art textile artist, as well as a tutor and author. These beautiful pieces of work form part of her collection entitled ‘seam(i)stress’ and illustrate her love of the sea and shoreline around her home in New Zealand. Alysn has used a variety of spray paints (car, furniture and art sprays) to colour the Evolon (the fabric element or base cloth seen in these images). By using shells as resists, she has created the impression of multiple shells on the beach and in some cases the shells have been re-applied to the surface. In […]

Put the (Lutradur) Flags Out!

by Ruth Morgan | July 2, 2020 | Posted in Lutradur

Bright, bold, breezy and colourful Lutradur bunting to help lift our spirits. Both of these lines of rainbow bunting were made from one A4 pack of White Lutradur 70gsm, containing 10 x A4 sheets. We began by cutting two triangular flags per sheet, which we then coloured using heat transfer paint. The flags were then evenly spaced and machine stitched in position, along two x 3 metre lengths of 20mm wide Grosgrain Ribbon. Here’s hoping everyone remembers to keep safe so we can all enjoy some extra freedom from 4th July . . . .

Face Mask for Fathers’ Day – in Evolon

by Ruth Morgan | June 16, 2020 | Posted in Evolon

After making a few masks out of Evolon (please see previous blog) we decided to celebrate Fathers’ Day by making a special mask for the Man of the House. We simply cut out the word DAD from some previously coloured Evolon and then added a few little kisses just to remind him how much he’s loved!

Facemasks in Evolon

We’ve been very busy making masks out of Evolon . . . Like so many people, we’ve been looking for ways to help during the lockdown. One very successful idea has been to make these masks, which have proved very popular with friends and family.

It’s […]

Lutradur ‘Net’ Curtains!

by Ruth Morgan | June 4, 2020 | Posted in Lutradur

A few months ago, we were contacted by Elaine Griffiths who wanted to create ‘net’ curtains out of Lutradur. After sending her some samples of various weights, she decided to buy a few metres of Lutradur 30gsm, which she cleverly converted into beautiful printed panels. The photograph above shows one of the panels, displayed on her studio door. From this image, it’s easy to imagine how effective they will be when hung together against a window, or made into a screen. This is the first time we have featured curtaining made out of Lutradur, but we’re sure it won’t […]

‘Burlesque’ by Karen Lane

by Ruth Morgan | May 14, 2020 | Posted in Lutradur

We’re delighted to present this latest piece of work sent into us by Karen Lane, a Feltmaker and Textile Artist, who has become a regular and valued contributor to our website. This piece measures 88cms x 48cms and includes various natural fibres, scrim, synthetic fabrics and silk, which have all been machine stitched on to a painted background of Lutradur 70gsm. Karen says the layout is totally random but that (as with any abstract work) we tend to see things that weren’t necessarily planned. In this case, once the red fabric had been applied, Karen saw a Burlesque style […]
