Suzanne Gillard

Textile Design

After a career in education, Suzanne has in recent years developed her interest in creative textile work. She uses a range of techniques including  silk painting  and dying, mixed  media work, free machining and  the  manipulation of a variety of fabrics to  produce a “new”fabric. Her main interest is wet felting and she draws inspiration from the Sussex countryside and the coast in the West Penwith area of Cornwall. She  derives much pleasure in working with the brilliant colours to be found in dyed Merino wool fibres and is currently using them with fine silk fabrics to produce nuno felt.
