Paddy Hartley - 1st World War
An interview with the fashion designer and artist, Paddy Hartley, presents an interesting view on making.
Over at textileartist.org,(Thanks, Sam.) an interview with the artist gives us an insight into his methods and the thought behind his pieces. It is the 1st World War figures, richly embroidered with words and patches, stories told through maps and felt, that caught our eye. Evocative, poignant, heroic and moving, have a look at some of them and his other work at paddyhartley.com.
