Maker of the Day: Rachel Ainley

Rachel is an artist whose work celebrates the domestic in textiles. Based in Nottingham, she designs and makes one off pieces that are lively, bold and colourful.
Motifs from nature, recycled fabrics plus retro pattern and styling come together in a range of beautiful objects to use and use again.
The 20th century world of the tea and coffee cosy, the peg and lavender bag is reinvented with a witty and theatrical twist.
With a theatre painting background, and an eye for collection of vintage fabrics, she draws in past histories and memories, creating contemporary collections, and fresh rituals.

Craft In The City Dates:
Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th
