I am a designer maker, specialising in embroidery and based in London. Colour has always been a passion, whether it be in nature, other cultures or on my own doorstep.
After a BA in Textiles Design from Chelsea College of Art, I worked for Oxfam for six years, helping bring new life to old textiles, running making workshops with the local community and working with sustainable designers.
I then travelled the world in search of inspiration, from the incredible kimonos of Japan to the amazing history of handmade texniques in India, and then went on to complete a PGCE in secondary education before setting up alexannestudio.
alexannestudio is my way of sharing my passion for textiles in general and embroidery in particular, whether it be through my own handmade pieces, workshops for all ages and working on bespoke commissions.
Handcraft is an amazing world: get in touch and be inspired!
