Welcome to Tigley Textiles
Julie Brand Contemporary Embroidery
Hello and welcome to Tigley Textiles,
I am a designer, tutor and learner of hand embroidery, machine embroidery and applique based in a little village near Pershore in Worcester.
My work has always been inspired by my surroundings – from the Cornish seaside of my childhood, with its sailing boats and seabirds, to the wildflowers around my little house in the countryside and the rabbits that scatter across my lawn when I open the curtains. Each piece is expressive and nostalgic, with a painstaking attention to detail. I work with lace and vintage fabrics, floral patterns and quirky prints. All of my materials are lovingly selected, often recycled and given a new lease of life.
I believe that every home should be decorated with unique and personal pieces. That’s why I like my customers to be involved in the creative process as much as possible – choosing the designs, fabrics and themes that are most meaningful to them. I love working with materials that have a story to tell, so if you have a treasured item of clothing or favourite photograph, I can help you to transform it into a delightful piece for your home.
There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of making something special to take away, and this is an experience I’d love to share with you. I run creative workshops, where I’ll guide you through the process of making and decorating beautiful bespoke items that you’ll cherish forever.
Please spend some time looking at the workshops page. I also offer a 1:1 tuition, either at the Tigley Textiles Studio, or at your home. If interested, you can complete contact from below, and I will get back to you shortly. If you would like to keep updated with my comings and goings, please subscribe to my regular newsletter and join me on my Facebook Page.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
