About Deborah

Deborah Dutton - Textile Artist

I am inspired by the natural environment and the outdoors.
Knit, loose threads, frayed edges, velvets, screenprint, and stitch celebrate my love of plants; 
I enjoy the way they move, catch the light, grow around each other, and regenerate.

I make individually constructed deckchair slings, 
seat coverings and cushions.
Also made to measure footstools and reupholstery.


I love the idea that my colourful bespoke deckchair slings and seat coverings are constructed to be looked at, sat upon, and have a visual and tactile impact in the Home or Garden. 

With each idea and the reusing of older fabrics alongside the new, I create and construct "one-off" funky, brightly coloured pieces of fabric,
 no two are alike.

 Deckchairs, Tea cosies, footstools, and doorstops. Commissions welcome.

The print on this stool is inspired by climbing and entangled plants

I also work regularly as a family arts facilitator working with children, young people, and their families within a range of settings.
