Darren Ball Textile Artist

Website: www.darrenballtextileartist.com

My artwork is inspired by fashion photographs in 1940’s Stitchcraft magazines and combines a love of the rich visual qualities of fabric with linear stitch. I reference the period through the use of vintage handkerchiefs, found embroidery and recycled fabric to suggest personal narratives. I am delighted to be one of 26 designer makers taking part in the Crafts Council Hothouse 2019 programme.
