Louise Nichols’ talk this month was entitled “From Graduation to a career as a Textile Artist”. As a child she always enjoyed drawing and sketching and after graduating Louise went to work for an upholstery designer, William Love for two years creating fabric and wallpaper designs.
Louise started making her own cards and a range of handmade wedding stationery and when she moved to Cornwall Louise created projects for SEW magazine. Needing a change of direction she enrolled on a printing course and started to use hessian backed lino to print simple basic images on fabric. As she kept the copyright for the magazine projects and was able to start her own workshops and now has kits and items for sale in 17 galleries around the UK.
