Award winning artist Priscilla Edwards began creating sculptural textiles while studying embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University during the 1990’s. It was here she was encouraged to nurture her love of found materials and transform the lost and overlooked into arresting works of art. These charming yet slightly dark fairy-tale like sculptures transcend the familiar qualities of the original materials and capture Priscilla’s perceptions of beauty, fragility and intrigue.
Once drawn into her enchanting world of afternoon tea, angelic angles and faux flora its hard to not to be captivated by Priscilla’s inquisitive imagination.
Over the past 25 years Priscilla has a developed a unique range of manipulation methods using hand and machine stitching combined with wire, fabric, wax and found objects to create pieces full of whit and charm. After completing her BA in Embroidery Priscilla established her practice at the centre of contemporary applied art in the UK and has also exhibited across Europe and the USA.
Priscilla loves to share her passion for textiles with others and has taught in many textile and fashion departments including the University of Cumbria and University of Salford, she now tutors for the University of Creative Arts. Other teaching includes workshops, short courses and presentations about her work.
In 2021 Priscilla authored he first book, ‘Sculptural Textile Art’ published by Search Press exploring her techniques and processes.
