Tel. +44 (0)1204 883607 Julie Southworth Textile Artist Julie@TheSouthworths.com
I completed my degree in printed textiles in 1983 at Liverpool College of Art, and from there went into teaching. My career included twelve years at St. Bedes College, Manchester.
Deciding to leave teaching and devote more time creating my own work, I successfully completed a four-year City and Guilds course in Creative Embroidery at the Bury Arts and Crafts Centre.
I am now a successful artist based in the North of England and exhibiting and selling my work at several local galleries.
My work consists of both machine and hand embroidery, which is sometimes combined in a single piece of work. Most of the fabrics I use I have dyed, painted or transfer printed, giving a richer surface on which to work. I have used bonding techniques and also make my own paper and felt. I am able to work to a range of scales, from 10cm squares to metre length wall hangings, utilising a variety of techniques.
