Locally born and bred, Sarah is currently studying Textiles Innovation and Design at Loughborough University, specialising in Printed Textiles. A love of drawing and nature are the foundations of Sarah’s hand printed textiles.

“All my textile designs start with drawing and painting. I use my initial sketches and photographs from local walks as a beginning point. Back in the studio, I develop patterns and designs and experiment with printing techniques; exploring the interaction between fabric and medium”

 “I’m inspired by places and people. The endless and varying beauty of the Lake District landscape and it’s ever changing colours, weather, patterns and textures influence my designs. I love textiles that have a story, that are rooted in a place and show a journey. Walking in Cumbria all year round, provides so many ideas”
