Amy Wilson is a fabric designer and fellow at Digswell Arts specialising in woven cloth.

Amy Wilson runs a bespoke sample service and design consultancy working under the ‘Liliane’ label and creates seasonal collections of artisan cloth and accessories.

“Made of Memories is a series of large scale woven panels, artwork and frameless fragments. They are all hand dyed and made using traditional hand weaving techniques. The work is inspired by my everyday observations of nature and the environment. It is intended as a collection of sensory triggers.”

“Infused scented warps are used to create a protective cocoon… light, shadow and echoes play to create layers of visuals. I have worked with text from the poetry of the late Alan Baxter (1947-1998) to re-create memories and moments lost in time in cloth.”
