Meet the Maker – Sue Rangeley

This year we celebrated the work of textile artist Sue Rangeley in an exhibition exploring her work over the past 50 years.

Sue’s career launched in 1974/5 with a modest collection of embroidered evening bags, cushion and waistcoats which attracted the interest of Vogue magazine writer Judy Brittain. From a Cotswold studio, set in a rambling Victorian house where other artists and craftspeople worked, Sue’s career echoed the vibes of the time with the revival of British arts and crafts encouraged by support from the Crafts Council.

Starting from that first decade the exhibition explored the different themes and techniques which have inspired Sue’s embroidered textiles, with examples of more recent work for the book ‘Embroidery Atelier – Visions & Passions’.

During the exhibition we asked Sue about a couple of pieces on display.
