crafter playing with flowers

Yarm, North Yorkshire


floral tapesty, floral embroidery, botanical art


I’m a trained graphic designer, but I’ve always loved crafting. Recently I started experimenting with floral wreaths and one of the ideas developed into weaving these on tulle inside an embroidery hoop almost like embroidery but using organic material as my thread. I’m experimenting with this medium at the moment, using flowers and foraged foliage that I dry. I’m trying to find ways to make these creations into more functional objects, but also develop bigger more complex tapestry style pieces.

This ethereal-looking wreath is made using mesh fabric and small blooms placed into artful arrangements. They compose half-crescent shapes around the embroidery hoop in a variety of flowers, leaves, and other greenery.
