Nawal Gebreel

Nawal Gebreel / Thursday 1st February 2018 - Wednesday 28th February 2018

Nawal is a Liverpool-based textile designer.

One of the main influences on her work are the shapes, textures and the rhythms of nature. Other influences include Japanese paper-folding and shibori techniques. She has travelled widely in Europe, America, Russia, Pakistan, China and Japan.

Nawal uses innovative 3-dimensional fabric manipulation techniques to produce luxurious scarves and wraps. She uses a wide range of sumptuous fabrics and colours to give her pieces individuality.

Recent commissions have included the Royal Academy shop in London, The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, The Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Art & Design in New York and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Her work is sold at a select range of boutiques, galleries and museum shops in the UK, Europe, USA and Japan.

Nawal’s studio is based at Liverpool’s Bluecoat Arts Centre, the oldest surviving building in the city centre (dating from 1717). The Bluecoat recently underwent a refurbishment and re-opened for Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture Year 2008.
