Gill Roberts, Embroiderer & Corset Maker at Belladonna & Roses

Textile Artist, Embroiderer & Corsetiere

Prenton, Merseyside


Embroidery, corsetry, textile art


I create, teach and lecture about bespoke textiles . Using both hand and machine embroidery, traditional and contemporary techniques, I create pieces of textile art, furnishings and garments.  Inspiration comes from context of the work; for a church commission, for example, it may be the building, or the life and teachings of a saint; for a textile art piece, it may be a response to the setting for the commission; for a garment, the individual who will wear it.  I am not defined by one style.


New Look for Bishop Eton Shrine

10 Apr 2020
An article in the Liverpool Catholic Pictorial magazine about a commissioned hanging for a chapel at Bishop Eton, Liverpool, which I designed, painted onto the silk, and did some of the appliqué and embroidery for (collaborative project).
