TILLY TEA DANCE

I'm a textile artist and tutor based in Shrewsbury. I take inspiration from the dramatic landscape, coastline, hillsides, hedgerows and gardens of Britain to create unique pieces of art in felting and embroidery. 
 

I haven’t taken a conventional route into being an artist. I am a lifelong stitcher and started sewing as a four year old with my mother. Although I took an A Level in Textile Art, I later studied a Law degree and an MA in Politics at the University of Sheffield before establishing a career in charity management. 
 

Each piece of my original textile art is individually designed and made using a variety of fabrics and fibres, buttons and beads.
