New member Caroline Hyde-Brown is a textile artist that originally trained in Fashion Design. In 1992 however she decided to study embroidery at Nottingham & Trent University. Her pieces combine a modern aesthetic with the craftmanship and quality of traditional technique. Investigating natural fibres and waste plant residue allows for a holistic and circular approach to her practice.
Caroline has built up a successful freelance career working in community arts and health settings. Design, production and manufacture for three major retail stores including Liberty Plc, John Lewis UK & Takashimaya, Japan & Malaysia.
Working with thread enables Caroline to spend time handling each material thus allowing for a deeper understanding and connection. The slow transformation and construction of new visual narratives is achieved by exploring traditional techniques. By forming partnerships with others Caroline studies non-conformity and indigenous practices. this helps shape and formulate ideas with continual thematic research.
Currently Caroline is involved with an ongoing collaboration at The John Innes Research Centre, Norwich and NIAB in Cambridge, where she is facilitating an innovative paper making process with ancient Neolithic subsistence crops such as grass pea, sunn hemp and chickpea.
