Aidan Liggins

Aidan studied Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design at Leeds College of art (now Leeds Arts University) in which she specialised in screen printing and hand printed textiles. Developing her practise after university – and in much smaller studio spaces – she has been exploring block printing and in particular looking into traditional wood blocks for textiles.

Exploring the process of wood carving and the natural character of block printing she creates geometric repeat patterns for textiles, creating bold homewares. The process of mark making is a fundamental element and these fabrics celebrate the simplicity of repeat pattern, a simple carved line and the quality fabrics they are printed on.
