Come join me at Chiswick Without Borders 28 Jan 2018

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Happy new year! Welcome to my new embroidery project.

‘Chiswick Without Borders’ is a participatory art project that invites you to stitch your connections to the world with a symbolic migratory bird- a swallow and its flight linking the map of Chiswick to places around the world. Connect your house to a place where your family comes from, or where you loved ones are or simply a place which is dear to your heart using simple embroidery stitches. At a time of growing insular voices and inward-looking gazes this project invites everyone to celebrate openness and connections through the convivial act of stitch.

I was invited to conceive and lead this project by the wonderful  Abundance London. If you have never embroidered before fear not, a team of lovely volunteers will be on hand to help. The project will take place under the arches of District and Piccadilly lines at Turnham Green Station, Chiswick W4 1LR on Sunday 28 Jan 2018 from 12:30-3PM coinciding with the unveiling of Chiswick Timeline. Entry free and everyone is welcome.

I hope you will join us! Sharing some images of work in progress here with you.

Thrilled to be featured in Selvedge Magazine’s May/June issue! I’ve drooled over Selvedge’s beautiful pages since my students days at Design school, the very best in textiles. What a delight to be in it.


Ekta Kaul i

Thank you fab folks at Selvedge for such a lovely feature:

“For the first week of May, the luxury handmade textiles of Ekta Kaul will be exhibited at the Oxo Tower Gallery as part of London Craft Week. Having originally trained in fashion at the National Institute of Design, India, Kaul’s focus on textiles began when she won scholarships to travel to the UK, and here she pursued her successful career in textile design. Now an award-winning designer running a London-based studio, her textiles focus on simplicity and craftsmanship, designing scarves, pillows and blankets that feature bold colours and graphic illustrations telling stories with unified elegance. Kaul is hailed as a truly unique artisan with the ability to blend influences from both India and the UK. Only using luxurious materials such as cashmere, silk and wool, she embroiders, hand-dyes and prints her textiles using traditional craft methods that highly value the expert level of skill inherent to textile design. London Craft Week takes place from 3-7 May 2017 www.londoncraftweek.com”

Next month we will be exhibiting  at a very exciting show ‘Marks and Tools‘ during the London Craft Week alongside some super talented designers from Design Nation. Design writer Barbara Chandler has worked with Design Nation to put this show together.

The exhibition is themed around the marks and tools of the maker and how these translate into different disciplines. Design-Nation’s makers produce a wide range of distinctive high quality contemporary objects, both useful and decorative, large and small, simple and ornate; all are distinguished by commitment to craft and deep understanding of excellent design.

We will be showcasing our embroidered London Map and a selection of scarves.
