The Story of Liz Whiteside Studio

the love of painting with threads

I've always loved creating and design.  My background is as a professional artist - using charcoal, pastels and acrylics.

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 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 saw me start designing rugs and small framed tapestry art.  I became a member of Find a Maker - a curated selection of makers in the UK.  
2024 sees me focusing on tapestry art and rug making.  My tapestry technique is evolving with my pieces having more colour blending and more realistic imagery.  I am selling these works to the US mainly which is exciting.
