Meet Freyelli Textiles – the textile artist creating stitched prints and homeware inspired by the changing seasons
Meet Ellie Hipkin from Freyelli Textiles – a textile artist with an involved design process. Her textile art is built up through layers of colour, painting, printing and stitching before being digitally printed or translated into homeware.
