Fay Maxwell – Hand Embroidery
Hand embroidery with Fay Maxwell
Block printing paisleys and embroidery by Fay Maxwell
Here is a selection of hand embroidered block printing by Fay Maxwell. We just love the way she has used strong vibrant coloured embroidery threads to really enhance the block printed image. The combination of hand embroidery stitches varies from very simple to really complicated looking, in places. Look too at the wonderful way she stitches shish (ask Indian mirrors) into her work too. We love and adore the textile art of Fay Maxwell. Hope you are as inspired as we are to get out our embroidery needles and threads and get stitching!
Textile artist Fay Maxwell loves to explore creating new surfaces with stitch and hand embroidery. She was one of the featured textile artists in the Colouricious TV series,“Talking Threads”where she shared her textile technique of slashing.
