Laura Marriott

Festival: 2017

With a passion for digital stitch; award-winning embroidery artist, Laura Marriott pushes the boundaries of digital embroidery. By stretching and layering stitches, she creates unusual and exciting textures, creating bold, innovative, sculptural forms.
Laura’s current work is inspired by a cultural fascination with tribal art and traditional objects accumulated on her travels around the world. Further influenced by the rich colours of Mayan art, and paralleled with inspiration from nature.
Her range of unique textile products spans from large installation pieces, to statement jewellery, to artistic purses and bags. Designed through playful compositions, built with individual shapes and quirky characters.
