Maker's Details - Prideaux, Vivien

Shibori – indigo and dyeing are contemporary techniques of our time, but I always want to delve further and discover through traditional and cultural references, a wider vocabulary to use in my work.

For forty years my passion and commitment to textiles as a self employed maker, dyer, embroiderer, freelance tutor, lecturer and author has taken me all over the world. My love of colour is inherent. Cloth and stitch are a natural way for me to express my personality. Shibori – indigo and dyeing are contemporary techniques of our time, but I always want to delve further and discover through traditional and cultural references, a wider vocabulary to use in my work. The unifying thread through my work continues to be based on informed perception of the awe inspiring beauty of my native Cornwall particularly the sea and its many moods, often exploring the patterns made by the interaction of the water, light, wind, waves and sand, as well as taking inspiration from my many journeys and experiences.

I continue to produce an individual, natural fibre, range of decorative and domestic textiles incorporating natural and synthetic dyeing, shibori resist, embroidery and screen-printing.
I offer workshops in natural and synthetic dyeing and resist techniques, lectures on Design, Colour, The Sustainability of Indigo Dyeing in Thailand and Japan and Crysede and Cresta - Early Twentieth Century British Textiles.
