Rose Hatcher: Textile Art
Vibrant images of flowers made from silk fibre, using a silk papier maché technique to create joyously colourful images.
Rose is best known for using silk fibres to create joyously colourful images. But she also makes Jewellery, sometimes using semi-precious stones, sometimes using beach finds or scrap salvaged from local sheds.
Most creative folk find it troublesome to be confined within a 'box' or defined by a 'label' and Rose is no exception. Excursions into alternative artistic disciplines constantly reinvigorate her work and give new insight into other makers' working practices. This insight is invaluable when selecting new makers to take part in 'Handmade for Christmas', where skill and originality are paramount.
