Textile Artist pop-up
13th - 17th December 2023
Sarah Appleton graduated in 2016 from the Textiles BA (Hons) course at the Arts University Bournemouth during which she completed internships at Nelly's Treasures and the prestigious Hand & Lock in London. Since graduating, she has exhibited her work in London, North Wales, Birmingham, Hampshire and across Dorset and has worked on projects with the New Carnival Company on the Isle of Wight, Devizes Outdoor Celebratory Arts, Kingston Lacy and Walford Mill Crafts.
Sarah enjoys using many creative processes throughout her work including screen printing, lino printing, hand drawing, digital printing, hand and machine stitching, fabric manipulation and crochet. The expressive use of colour and different mediums and techniques eludes to Sarah's fun-loving and adventurous nature. Creating different illustrated characters with individual personalities is a unique way to bring joy and humour to her work. With much of Sarah's work being small batch limited runs due to her unique way of working, the exclusivity of these pieces cannot be overstated.
Sarah lives in Dorset with her cat, James.
