Weaving with nature by Felicity Truscott

Artwork by Felicity Truscott
The artist / designer maker, Felicity Truscott will be exhibiting and selling her work exclusively at Elemental's Shoreditch Store during the London Design Festival in September 2018.

She will  also run two workshops on 22/09 and 23/09/18 at Elemental's London Fields Studio, during which you can learn about weaving techniques and make your own platter and/or also create a unique floor mat.

Truscott studied at Edinburgh College of Art. She uses 'drawing as a process to explore movement, time and physicality. The majority of her work originates from the landscape and is influenced by repetition, relationship and traces of use'. For the last two years, she has been exploring and mastering basketry skills which are a logical progression to her artistic approach.

'My practice explores relationships between the seen and unseen, recording linear, layered or interwoven traces in site specific contexts.
I play with the idea that a line can be a physical object and also a train of thought.I make sculptural forms and functional vessels using basketry skills and materials which have provenance to a particular area or history.
I like to use stake and strand weaving and wrapping techniques which have been employed by humans ever since we have existed, fastening and interlocking lines which have structural integrity through their own dependency and the human relationship of designer, user, maker and artisan'.
