Bespoke Textile Art

Winifred Taylor commissions are bespoke, one-of-a-kind keepsake artworks created to order and carefully designed to your individual specification. 

They are perfect for:

-Wedding presents

Still in possession of something blue? The hem of a bridal veil? A handful of confetti? The text of a funny wedding speech? Let me create a collage of fragments and precious items from your big day.

-Christening gifts and baby items

Still undecided what to do with all those baby clothes you couldn’t bear to part with? Imagine them transformed into a picture celebrating baby’s early years. I can work with anything from the lace of a Christening gown to a favourite bib - stains optional. And since you chose the clothes in the first place, it’s guaranteed to be to your taste!

-Memorials, birthdays and anniversaries

Special gifts, photos, wrapping paper that bring a smile to your face; indeed, anything that you have been able to part with and squirreled away in a dark cupboard or bottom of the drawer. Remove them from their hiding place and let me turn them into pieces of textile art that you look at every day.

-UFOs 

No, that doesn’t mean I take commissions from little green men. A UFO is an Un-Finished Object. You’re bound to have one. You may even have several. UFOs are any time-consuming craft project that fell by the wayside. A knitting pattern that unravelled. A quilt that wilted. Don’t throw it away! Let me give them a new lease of life as a bespoke artwork instead. Frame it. Hang it up. At last, it’s finished!

Maybe you would prefer to have a go at creating one yourself? I run keepsake art workshops in York: see the ‘News’ and ‘Workshops/talks’ sections of the website for upcoming dates or get in touch to request one.
