WOMAN IN MAKING: Karen Woods working with TRIUMPH LINGERIE
I have worked with lots of organisations all across the UK running and organising workshops and events. Working closely with various health and educational bodies I have a wealth of knowledge and experience on hand if you are considering a workshop.
My own studio work is textiles and mixed media and usually wall hung.
It is bright and quirky with figurative and narrative elements, using rich colours threads and fabrics. Work is repeatedly stitched into allowing tones to build up, using wool, hand sewing threads, silks and metallic threads.
