Wendy Ann Stanger
As a Textile Artist and Designer I work with natural plant and animal fibres to create highly textured papery surfaces, which I embed dried flowers, leaves and beach finds into. Layering the found and gathered objects between fine silk and fleece fibres. I embellish with stitch, both free motion machine embroidery and hand stitch. Commissioned pieces often have personal meaning as the works contain memories specific to a particular person, place or event. The personalization of the work is an important part of the process allowing me to work closely with my clients to decide on the content of the pieces.
As a fully qualified Art and Design teacher, I am equipped with the skills to organize and facilitate Artist residencies, talks and lectures on my work and deliver participatory workshops. Please visit my website at www.wendyannstangertextiles.co.uk for more details.
