Pure magic from turned wood and fine textiles by Designerpig Acker.
Designerpig (aka Irene) Acker has a degree in design and PGCE in education,specialising in wood and textiles.Her fabric designs have been published in the IDFX mag. She has been a member of arts hub for 2 years. This is her first exhibition and it will include a small selection of her wood and textiles. Irene has been wood turning for many years and loves the colour and grain of the different wood. She says, ‘I am very happy when I find a tree surgeon for some free green wood. Most of the green wood I use is from local parks or family and friends gardens.’
Her textiles are mostly silk and felt as she likes natural fabrics and loves the process of making something from fibres, All are hand dyed, screen printed and some have other techniques.
