Alice Fox


We are sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances, Alice will not be able to join us at the Yorkshire Arboretum. 

We look forward to welcoming Alice to Ryedale in the future.

Get inspired by the glorious landscape of the Arboretum in this half-day leaf-stitching workshop with artist, Alice Fox.

Alice’s process-led practice is based on personal engagement with landscape. Alice works with natural fibres and gathered materials, employing natural dye techniques, print, stitch and weave in different combinations to create surfaces and structures. Found items, their identity often a mystery because of the action of the elements, form the focus of Alice’s response to a landscape. Alice takes an experimental approach to these found items: by engaging with the materials that she finds, manipulating them and experimenting, Alice learns about their properties, boundaries and possibilities. This exploration becomes a collaboration between object and artist.

Alice studied Contemporary Surface Design & Textiles at Bradford School of Arts & Media and works from her studio in Saltaire, West Yorkshire. Alice exhibits, lectures and teaches workshops nationally and internationally. She is a member of the Textile Study Group and the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
