Collage and textile work come together in an inspired collection of techniques and projects
When designer Mandy Pattullo weds collage with textile work, the result is a happy marriage of techniques. Mandy shows how to transform those hoarded bits of fabric, trim, and memory-filled domestic textiles into something new and personal. From sourcing and unpicking found material to creating portraits with transferred images, and projects too, Textile Collage is a unique resource of creative ideas.
Mandy Pattullo trained as a surface pattern and textile designer and now is a textile artist, exhibiting her own work around the UK and also running textile and printmaking workshops. Her work is based on collage technique, and she makes a conscious effort not to buy new fabric; instead, she repurposes the range of beautiful existing pieces that can be found everywhere.
