18 February 2015 11:55

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BLISS STUDIO TEXTILES , Showcasing at the British Craft Trade Fair with her collection:
Sequana: Ocean storms & Autumn forests
Sunday 12th April -14th April 2015 Great Yorkshire Showground , Harrogate, HG2 8QZ, Sunday 10-6pm Mon/Tues 10- 5pm
Linda Blissett presents a line of hand woven fabrics inspired by Celtic mythology, the illuminated of early Celtic Christianity and the natural landscape & forms of the British Isles. From our storm battered coasts (see ‘Lulworth’), to our chalk downs and Autumn forests, to the Lindisfarne Gospels. Her work draws on a time when day was filled with colour, hue and wonder, night hid creatures both known and unknown while camaraderie and the campfire held all but the corporeal terrors at bay.

Linda is a London-based textile designer, specialising in niche items constructed from fabrics which she designs and hand weaves herself .

Linda studied at Middlesex & Portsmouth Universities, graduating with a BA honours in Constructed Textiles and H.N.D Textiles for Fashion.
This is Linda’s first trade fair since setting up Bliss Studio Textiles 18 months ago and is very excited to first showcase these unique handwoven accessories at the BCTF.
Bliss Studio Textiles were founded in August 2013 which is currently based at Wimbledon Art Studios.

She endeavors to create unique handcrafted pieces of wearable art from scarves, wraps and bags.  Each design, an individual work, intended to create a piece of composition that delivers a distinctive mood or texture into fabric. No two pieces will be identical, although themes flow from one piece to another. She has an affinity for colours and textures and likes experimenting with variety of different forms of media. Her work incorporates a multitude of media; from silks, luxury wool fibres, cashmere, mohair, metallic yarns, ribbons, vintage lace, velvets and satins with occasional hand embroidered beading (as inspiration dictates).
Her influences are primarily drawn from the Art Nouveau era (particularly artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Jessie M King, Margaret MacDonald), together with Celtic Mythology. Linda is also deeply influenced by the seasonal ebb and flow of the British Isles, from Autumnal woodlands, insect wings, and tree bark and the undulating patterns of seaweed left by the outgoing tide.
