Margaret Fairhead

In addition to the Birmingham Arts Circle I am also a Member of the Embroiderers’ Guild, Jean Draper’s Advanced Textile Workshops, Lichfield and Sutton Coldfield Arts Societies, Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, and Midlands Textile Forum.

I paint a little, design more, and experiment a great deal, using a wide range of fabrics and threads to create framed textiles and hangings.

Techniques include free machine stitching, use of computerised machine and some hand stitching. I aim to exploit and focus upon the potential for texture and movement of colour within my work.

Design sources have come mainly from studies of texture, using simple geometric shapes, medieval tiles, patterns on the body of the tiger, colours in the evening sky, movement and reflections on the surface of water – and recently still life, particularly fruits and flowers.
