Poppy Treffry

My work is about transferring my drawings into stitch. I sketch almost every day and subjects can be everything from the roof tops of St. Ives to Andalusian chickens. Through stitch my drawings are transformed, they take on a looser more childlike quality and colours become patterned and textured fabrics. I work in both two and three dimensions making framed embroideries and textile 'pots'.

There is also a very practical aspect to my work which means my drawings may also become bags, cushion covers or tea-cosies.

I was born in North Cornwall in 1976 and grew up on the fringes of Bodmin Moor. After spending several years away, living, studying and working in Winchester and more recently living and working in Central America, I returned to Cornwall in 2003. I now live in Penzance and work from a shared studio in Newlyn.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 62 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
