Ella Robinson

Ella’s degree was in textiles with a focus on combining textiles and other materials. Below are some of her pieces of work that combine found wood and embroidery. 

One of the interesting things about Ella’s work is that the back is left unfinished which emphasises the contrast between the textiles decoration and the wooden surface.
