Sarah Waters was chosen from a very large number of artists who applied to join
Art Textiles: Made in Britain as guest artist for our new show Found, to be launched at the
Festival of Quilts in 2021, and on its tour over the next two years.
We welcome her and are very much looking forward to having her show with us.
Here is a small selection of her work; there is more to see on her website.
Sarah is a textile artist with a passion for feltmaking that originates from her love of sheep. Living in the New Forest, Hampshire, her work reflects her desire to connect with nature and the importance of sustainability. Earliest memories are of collecting pieces of wool caught on fences and twisting them into long threads.
Sheep, wool and farming are in her blood.
Using both traditional and innovative techniques she aims to show the diversity and qualities feltmaking can be taken to. She is passionate about using British Wool, which lends itself to a variety of disciplines within the textile world.
