Fabric Mountain

Always inspirational, often recycled and lovingly created

Meeting a fabric designer at work

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to visit an artist in residence almost on my own doorstep in the delightful setting of Burton Agnes Hall.

The artist was fabric designer Nel Whatmore. Nel produces beautiful floral work, mainly in pastels and her work features on fabric, tapestry & patchwork kits.

I found Nel in the little artists conservatory working on a fabulously colourful picture.

It was great having the chance to talk to a ‘proper’ artist / fabric designer and pick her brains about pattern repeats, creating collections etc, she was absolutely lovely and I can’t wait to see what fabric designs emerge from her latest artwork produced at Burton Agnes.
