The Story of Liz Whiteside Studio
the love of handwoven
I've always loved creating and design. My background is as an artist - using charcoal, pastels and acrylics - selling out of local galleries and my studio.
I moved into textile design - combining my artwork with high quality fabrics initially but then moved more towards pure textile design.
In March 2021 I was gifted my first rigid heddle loom. I made cushion fronts and blankets but soon realised I wanted to learn the tapestry technique. It gives me more freedom to use my artistic background to combine images, colours and textures. My loom range has grown and I also now spin fibre.
I want to bring you unique pieces which cannot be found in a shop. They will have been lovingly made over many hours in my studio.
2023 will see rugs and small framed tapestry art pieces being added to my range of items. I want to focus on design.
