About

Shelby George, a Surface Pattern graduate from Swansea Metroplitan, UWTSD, creates bespoke interior fabrics. Committed to the exploration of traditional textile techniques, her graduate collection is a mix of luxurious velvet, silk, and wool blends. The work draws from photographs of stone from her Grandfathers quarry and the Jurassic coast. Her chosen pallet is a combination of muted and rich colour drawn from the natural qualities of stone. A layering of silkscreen processes communicates the textural nature of limestone, Cotswold stone and Indian slate. The use of devoré, flock, foiling, shibori and hand dyeing provides a unique combination of embellishment and manipulation, which both builds upon and strips down surfaces. This has provided her materials with tactile, translucent and texture rich qualities.
