Year 12 Art Textiles A-Level students recently went to see local artist Carol Naylor in residence. The reason we chose this particular artist is because her inspiration and subject matter is largely based on the South Downs. Carol specialises in free machine embroidery a technique our students use in their work. We had a wonderful time talking to her and finding out about her life and passions, her education and her plans for the future. We were shown many pieces of Carol’s work that were set aside ready for her forthcoming exhibition ‘A Stitch in Time’ and were given a rare glimpse into how she creates these unmistakable pieces.
