Little Sarah!

Sarah Pearson Cooke produces hand dyed textiles using the traditional Japanese method of Shibori, in combination with her personal interpretations of resist dyeing. She then develops the textiles into one-off wearable fashion garments such as silk wraps and scarves as well as products for the interior such as silk screens/room dividers and ambient lighting for the home.
The 2013 Spring/Summer Collection are unique digitally printed wool/silk scarves based on imagery found in the natural world. Birds in flight and entangled  between nets and branches in striking colur themes for the season.

As well as developing her range of textiles she is also involved in public art ventures, workshops and commission work including work for schools.

Sarah initially studied for a BA (Hons) Creative Arts involving Music, Printmaking and Textiles. She then furthered her passion for textiles by completing an MA Design: Textiles in 2004 in which she achieved distinction. She studied for both at Bath Spa University College. She creates at her workshop outside Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, and is a member of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen where she regularly exhibits her collection.

Sarah travels frequently throughout Europe for research and particularly enjoyed her extended period of study in Asia where she attended the International Shibori Symposium in Tokyo, Japan. Sarah also continues to teach Textiles at a secondary school.
