About

Darren trained in Fashion Textiles, specialising in hand knit. He taught himself machine embroidery whilst teaching textiles in FE. His embroideries combine a love of the rich visual qualities of fabric with linear stitch, embellished with beads and sequins.

His current work is inspired by the stylised photographs of knitting patterns in his collection of 1940’s Stitchcraft magazines. Referencing the period he uses found embroidery and recycled fabrics to suggest personal narratives.
