Britain’s Best Textile Artists – Gina Ferrari
Gina Ferrari is a fascinating textile artist who enjoys exploring the rhythm and repetition of the sewing machine building up colour and textile in a spontaneous way. A central theme in Gina’s work is the theme of revelation and concealment. This theme is enhanced by the very nature of textile art with exploration and discovery being the key to any textile artists’ success. Experimentation and spontaneity lead to intriguing textile pieces.
Gina often incorporates materials such as paper, metal and wire as well as fabrics to create enchanting 2D and 3D forms. The focus is on machine embroidery bringing all these elements together.At Colouricious we were lucky enough to have Gina visit the studio to record tutorials guiding viewers on creative machine embroidery.
