Michael Arnold’s work is digitally slick and filled with great pairings of pattern and colour. He goes in depth telling us about his process and materials.

Dots, stripes, and checks, among many other patterns play out in Michaels work with unreserved intensity. We like how he arranges them side by side, having them work together to build up a layered, patterned effect. It’s a strong, graphic style that translates well into products as he goes on to tell us.

Bundles of warm characters jump and dance around in the patterns created by Harriet Seed. Rather than just the one or two repeated drawings, there are collections of people animals and objects jostling around the cities and forests. This gives her work many little things to look for and discover.

Patterns inspired by structures in her surroundings feature in Hannah Waldron’s eclectic mix of work. Her designs are a detailed patchwork of decoration, masses of bold primary colours and sets of fine, parallel lines. While she applies the same draughtsman-like style to her drawings and screen prints, she also works in textiles.

We like the experimentation Emily Barletta is doing with traditional textile techniques and the intertwining of disciplines. Earlier projects have seen her encasing clay sculptures in colourful, snug, crocheted skins. Her recent work is a study into stitched drawing techniques, blurring the seam between drawing and fabric design.
