Zara Merrick first trianed as a jeweller at Central St Maritns, where she developed a love of detail and fine craft. As time went on though, she found she needed a different medium to satisfy my passion for colour, pattern and texture.
Zara's textile works are entirely hand stitched, using vintage and contemporary fabrics sourced from antique fairs in France and England. Thread is incorporated to add depth and shade. Zara also likes to bring intricate detail and precision to her work with each piece taking hundreds of hours to complete.
