Angela Stringer is a natural dyer and textile artist exploring the relationship between fashion and art through botanically dyed fabrics. Her focus, is to highlight slow fashion as an antedote to mass consumerism through her desire to stay connected to nature whilst incorporating a mindful practise.
Acquiring a BA Hons in Fine Art, Angela then went on to become a self taught corsteiere creating contemporary corsetry using painterly floral printed silks and lace. Corsetry requires a high level of skill involving historical techniques and processes, and so it was a natural progression to discover the ancient traditions of natural colour with plant based material.
Falling in love with the 'slow' process of natural dyeing and a desire to return to her art background, Angela is now focusing her time on creating a series of works delving deeper into the mark makings of botancial colour both on cloth and through varying art media. She is incorporating all of these modes of expression to produce mini collections of one off hand dyed apparel and artworks.
