La Segua

The uniquely talented artist Stewart Easton was asked to produce this lovely image entitled "La Segua", in his digital and hand embroidery style.

The image depicts a Costa Rican folk tale entitled:  'La Segua' which Stewart designed for the Making Moves project in conjunction with Craftspace Ltd.

The project is about working within a Hispanic Group formed of a mix of people from Spain, Peru, Mexico and Costa Rica with the aim to expose children to the Hispanic Culture and the Spanish language .
After meeting with them in Warwick, Stewart was required to make a piece of artwork which had a connection to the group. During the specific workshops that took place there was a great deal of story telling by the the people taking part. Stewart was inspired by a particular folk tale from Costa Rica entitled "La Segua" that was told by one of  the group,  and he has used that storyline for the grounds of his creative artwork.

This piece was hand drawn, digitally manipulated and printed digitally onto fabric. It was then finished by hand embroidery.

Sarah Howell – Eager & Vane Silk Scarves

Sarah Howell is embarking on an exciting new fashion project and collaborating with her two sisters Dana Eager and Cass Eager Howell to create wonderfully surreal and vibrant silk scarves for women who follow their own fashion. Think Hermes at a rave with a modern pop twist, vibrant joyous patterns that can morph from rock chic to a night at the Nutcracker.

E&V is about fashion created by visual artists and draws as much inspiration from Jean Miro and fourteenth century Japanese woodblock prints, as it does from the catwalk. Each print comes with its own visual story and acknowledge the artists that have inspired them. All pieces are hand-numbered and printed in small limited editions of no more than 50, and come with a Certificate of Authenticity so you can be assured that you are buying a very
unique and special piece.

E&V Scarves are lovingly and carefully printed on the highest quality silks, and finished with hand-rolled hems. They are beautifully boxed and delivered free, anywhere in the world.
