Jo Hill Textile Exhibition
Jo Hill creates original textile art inspired by the natural world, often from country walks in Staffordshire, where she will see an image that captures her eye, a particular grouping of colours or a sense of movement.
She begins by making a print screen with her design, and then uses a breakdown printing technique to print a selection of fabrics to use as a starting point. She works intuitively and layers fabrics to build up a design, using hand dyed fabrics and papers that reflect the colours and mood she wants to express.
Jo sometimes work in a series, capturing the essence of the landscape. Colour, texture and pattern are central to the design process. Every piece of work is unique due to the variations in the materials and techniques used. The colour palette of her signature style is muted and sophisticated and fabrics are often hand-dye fabrics to achieve the perfect colour.
