Margo Selby Textiles
Margo Selby Textiles / Saturday 1st February 2020 - Saturday 29th February 2020
This exhibition coincides with the lead up to Valentine’s Day, with an array of stunning textiles on display as ideal gifts for a loved one.
Having trained extensively in woven textiles Margo Selby is a designer with a bold approach to creating luxurious fabrics. Her instinctive and spontaneous colour palette is fresh and striking, yet the combinations have a rich subtlety, which allow the products to work harmoniously within a variety of both traditional and modern interiors.
Margo trained at Chelsea College of Art and Design and followed this with a postgraduate degree at The Royal College of Art (RCA), graduating in 2001. Responding to the overwhelming demand for her fabrics following the RCA degree show, Margo began to develop relationships with mills to explore the possibilities of production.
The next 18 months were spent at The Ann Sutton Foundation, a pioneering research centre for woven textiles where Margo was one of the founding fellows, working on projects for industry alongside developing her own work. It was during this time that Margo united her innovative hand-woven structures with industrial machinery to create the unique 3-dimensional fabrics that were to become the trademark of the Margo Selby brand.
