Initial exploration on paper using a variety of media and techniques to be developed and used on fabric.

Mary Sleigh

I am a textile artist, maker, tutor and author. Much of the joy in what I create is in the actual making process, allowing work to change through construction. Using mixed media is important to my way of working; combining fabric and stitch with other materials and sometimes found objects. Finding connections with places and people and the traces left by past generations are significant to my current work. I have been an avid collector since childhood and my collections map significant moments, capture the essence of a place and offer starting points for new work. Foraging, finding, sorting, remembering, ordering and recording become embedded in developing ideas for new work.
