It is with great pleasure that The Hotwalls Studios can announce the arrival of our newest artist in Studio 8- Miesje Chafer!
Miesje specialises in working with fabrics and textiles. She brings with her a splash of colour in her bright and bold work! Miesje’s process involves hand screen printing on a variety of materials such as cotton, silk, linen, leather and sometimes neoprene when she is feeling adventurous.
There is a beauty in the design, quality and functionality of what Miesje creates. With products ranging from lampshades, purses and reusable shopping bags she brings another dynamic to the creative talent already present amongst her neighbouring artists and designer-makers from Studios 1-13.
Miesje explains how she has always possessed a love of textiles. She says ‘ from a young age I used to knit terrible scarves full of holes…now I am fortunate enough to make a living from fabric’.
This Sunday Miesje will be participating in her very first Open Studios with us alongside The Traders Keep. Make sure you pop in to find out more about how Miesje works, with the chance to buy and commission your very own work from her- and the rest of the Studios of course!
For now we wish Miesje a very warm welcome to the Studios and our creative community!
