Combining exciting artwork with traditional craftsmanship, Liz Lippiatt follows the tradition of creating cloth in the deep valleys of Gloucestershire, reflecting the skills, traditions, and ideals of the original Arts and Crafts Movement.
Liz is inspired by the natural world, creating cloth with an unusual depth of colour and texture, silk screen printing and dyeing only the finest natural fibres to create collections of printed silks and fine devore velvet for scarves, stoles and specialist cloth for couture.
Liz has a particular expertise in creating transparency and texture in silk velvet with a technique known as devore, and a passion for creating depth of colour through traditional screen printing methods, forcing the dye deep into the fibres. Liz often over-dyes to further blend and deepen the colour, finishing and pressing the velvet pile to give a panne effect 'like beaten gold'.
Liz works with notable clients and galleries
