Vivienne Netherwood


    As a textile artist I work with wet felted wool and silk fabric to create pictures and accessories. Using a combination of beautifully coloured wool and fabric to striking effect, my bags and scarves and containers are made to my own designs. My accessories include felted keyrings, pendants and brooches.

    Inspiration for my pictures comes from the local landscape, life drawing and studying patterns found in nature.  I love experimenting with different techniques to create abstract and representational images. In particular, I make extensive use of pre-felt to create shapes and use a variety of fabrics for shading and texture effects. After felting, I use techniques such as printing, stitching and drawing to enhance the design.

    In tandem with my textile work, I have been exploring printmaking using a variety of techniques including linocuts, drypoint etching and gelatine plate printing.
