My name is Chris Gray, and my company’s name is Mabon Arts. I’m a textile artist, who is inspired by tribal textiles and embroidery, and most of the pieces I make reflect these inspiration sources.

I design and make wall panels, and, in more recent times items of jewelry.

I dye both fabrics and threads for creative embroidery, and produce stitching kits for cross-stitch and punchneedle.

Having worked in education for a number of years, I also run textile workshops covering a variety of techniques, along with writing textile related articles for a number of national magazines.

 

Statement

I make textile art quite simply because I need too! My academic background in religion and prehistory led me to focus on the textiles and arts of ancient and tribal societies. I have qualifications in creative embroidery, along with a Master of Arts. I started my small company with the aim of passing on my skills and knowledge to a wider audience and trying to keep these ancient craft skills alive.

We love hearing from our community!
