Clare’s workshop is in the rural idyll of Faux,a small village located in the heart of the Dordogne, not far from Bergerac. The recent move to this new space has allowed her to take on bigger commissions and expand the soft furnishings aspect of her business, including reupholstery.
She has worked with textiles for many years, learning to sew at secondary school with an o’level in fashion and fabrics. She went on to work in costume departments in California and England, expanding her areas of expertise with college courses in pattern cutting and draping, before diverging into art textiles, quilting and fabric printing.
She is always creating and exploring in the world of textiles, learning new skills that she can apply both to her personal work and work for clients.
