Today it is our honor to share these breathtaking hand-printed patterns created by Katy Welsh. Katy writes, “I am in my final year at Leeds college of art studying printed textiles and am really excited to see what the future has in store!” We’re excited too, Katy!!
In terms of her process, Katy writes, “Colour is my main focus, I really like to mix and match to create experimental and bold palettes which I use across my collections. My work is often influenced by nature, I enjoy drawing organic shapes and translating them in a variety of ways, but most often using collage and paint. All my designs are printed by hand, it’s a method of working that really adds to the feel of my fabrics and brings them a lot of their character, I like the spontaneity that comes with handcrafting my pieces and serendipity often has a part to play in how they end up!”
