Elsa Buch

Contemporary Textiles


Elsa’s passion for textiles has its origin in Denmark years ago, watching her mother embroider, crochet and knit. This experience taught her about colour, texture, design and a love of creativity which led her to seek qualifications in textiles. Elsa finds inspiration for her designs in the beauty of every-day things and, especially, in nature. She enjoys inventing new ways of using different materials; thus a great deal of experimentation proceeds before the final format emerges. She often combines layers of fabric to create a new surface for stitch which, therefore, becomes unique.

Elsa derives considerable satisfaction from recycling old/used materials and from dyeing her own fabrics and threads. Recently she has been delving into fibre and mixed-media collage but stitch always plays an important part in her work.
