Patternbank were excited to hear about a new exhibition exploring the work of designer and artist Josef Frank, due to take place at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum from 27th January – 7th May 2017. This will be the first ever UK exhibition showcasing the designers work, which will include furniture, glassware, lighting and interior design. Born in Austria Josef Frank moved to Sweden in 1933, where he developed his colourful brand of modernism, working with Estrid Ericson on a number of interior design ideas, together redefining what is regarded as Swedish Modern. The exhibition in association with Millesgarden, Stockholm highlights Frank’s vibrant designs for Svenskt Tenn alongside a number of his previously unknown watercolours. The museum is also holding a one day event before the exhibition opens to the public, where you will be able to meet the exhibition curator and team, a fantastic opportunity to learn more about what promises to be a wonderful insight into the work of Josef Frank.

01-danielle-clough

Patternbank thought we’d share artist Danielle Clough’s fabulous embroidered vintage tennis and badminton rackets which have been doing the rounds on all the very best blogs this month. Vibrant and quirky with thick brightly textured yarns weaving their way across tough strings, Danielle’s flowers look completely at home. Not surprisingly all Danielle’s rackets have sold out after being featured on Colossal, Creative Boom, plus many other great sites so guess what she’s serving up some more and starting an online store.

RETAIL-SNAPSHOT-TRAINERS-IN-PRINT-0002

Pattern and print is everywhere at the moment and in particular the trainer market who are joining forces with some of the most talented designers and artists around. From Liberty teaming up with brands like Nike and Vans to adorn trainers with classic Liberty patterns to more new contemporary prints. Also designers Eley Kishimoto and artists Zio Ziegler and Takashi Murakami have added their distinctive style to the Vans classic slip-on, clothing and bags.

A fairly new company Inkkas has adopted a novel way of choosing which trainers to put into production by crowdfunding their product first. This way they can see which styles are more popular before they commit to production. Not only that they take an ethical approach to production too, crafted with respect for the environment and the people who make them and for every product purchased they plant a tree. Print and pattern is not going away anytime soon and with new advances in technology it looks like it’s here to stay. Patternbank would like to think this is the begins of a pattern take over!

The Patternbank team have poured over Spring/Summer 2016’s runway shows at London Fashion Week, to bring you Part 2 of London’s key print trends. Preen’s catwalk collection for S/S16 focused heavily on the dramatic combination  of pretty florals overprinted with structured geometrics, whereas Katrantzou’s runway show was a rich and eclectic mix of clashing floral prints and decorative embellishments. Other shows were just as print heavy with sharp, structured geos, teeming meadow florals, and giant photographic prints all fighting for attention in this season’s London shows. Stay with us for Milan S/S16 coming soon!

01-Bovey-Tracey-Festival-2015

The Patternbank team returned to Bovey Tracey in Devon for The Contemporary Craft Festival 5-7 June 2015. This year the festival picked up 2 Gold Best Event awards in Devon and Silver for South West Tourism Event of the Year. The Contemporary Craft Festival is one of the UK’s largest craft events with over 200 diverse and talented makers of ceramics, textiles, mixed media, jewellery, glass and furniture. Here are some of our favourites from the day.

Katrin Moye

03-Katrin-Moye

Working with ceramics and paper Katrin Moye focuses on surface decoration, with patterns referencing personal memories, literature, family history and folk art. In particular her childhood memories of Germany in 1970’s with references to her German family roots and Scandinavian style influences from her Danish godmother.

Bryony Rose

02-Bryony-Rose

Bryony Rose creates whimsical animals sculpted from beautiful vintage fabrics adding details in lace and decorative buttons. We particularly love her playful mice balanced on old cotton reels, so pretty.

Ella Robinson

04-Ella-Robinson

Unique, vibrant and decorative would best describe Ella Robinson’s one of pieces of driftwood and washed-up artefacts collected from the south coast of England. Driftwood is made interesting with stitched patterns, cacti imagery and wrapped in brilliant striped threads.

The Patternbank team were at the recent Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey, Devon where a fantastic array of designer/makers in mediums from ceramics, furniture, glass, metal, mixed media, jewellery and textiles, show and sell their work to the public. The Contemporary Craft Festival was founded in 2003 as a non-profit making company. One of the most prestigious and highly acclaimed craft events in the UK, visitor attendance has grown from 4,000 to 8,000 in the last decade, not surprising when you see the quality of work on show. The festival also provides a fantastic day out with creative workshops and a much loved children’s craft tent not forgetting Punch and Judy. Here we give you a taster of the show and some of our favourites with a distinct pattern feel.

 

Cleo Mussi

Cleo Mussi is an established Mosaic Artist with a background in Textiles where she trained at Goldsmiths in the late 80’s. Mussi has a particular interest in recycled fabrics, knowledge of pattern, print, weave and stitch which translates easily into reclaimed ceramic. Particularly known for her humorous twists and great attention to detail her work stands out from the crowd.

 

Zoe Hillyard

Zoe Hillyard works with textiles to create these seemingly exquisite ceramic vessels. Discarded and broken ceramics are disguised to perfection with an array of beautiful vintage textile pieces, each segment carefully stitched together, seeing is believing.
