Iris Bishop is an artist and designer with an innovative approach to textile design, combining weaving, knitting and other ‘sculptural’ techniques. She loves to incorporate new, vintage and re-cycled materials into her work, making every garment and accessory a unique piece. The ‘Art Trail’ and ‘Art Fair’ present wonderful opportunities to show seasonal collections of ‘one-off’ studio designs and experimental pieces, alongside her more ‘classic’ range of garments.
She has also produced a collection of digitally-printed scarves and garments, using 100% silk crepe-de-chine fabric. These designs combine elements from her drawings, paintings, photographs and imagery of 3-D textile work. Their colour and image quality is exceptional, each piece being individually produced and hand-finished in Sussex.
Individual commissions are always welcome – each piece being customised to fit and suit clients in terms of style, size and colour, using high quality materials and with a professional finish.
