So who is Edwina Sutherland anyway?

I love creating art, using textiles as my medium. My career has been spent drowning in fabric, creating historic reproduction costumes for historic sites and museums. That means people wear my stuff and pretend to be living in another era.

In between that, I started making little figures in costume and other fantasy outfits. Call them art dolls, dolls, figurative art. They tell stories to each person who looks at them. I talk about them on my blog and in my monthly newsletter,…

So who is Edwina Sutherland anyway?

I love creating art, using textiles as my medium. My career has been spent drowning in fabric, creating historic reproduction costumes for historic sites and museums. That means people wear my stuff and pretend to be living in another era.

In between that, I started making little figures in costume and other fantasy outfits. Call them art dolls, dolls, figurative art. They tell stories to each person who looks at them. I talk about them on my blog and in my monthly newsletter, where I also ponder creativity. Check my web site - on the left marked “FREEBIES?” - you can sign up there!

I am always experimenting with new techniques, love making things with wool, which usually means needle felting or wet felting. I have done the knitted and shrunk in the washer kind of thing, but I don’t call that felting. Technically, it’s fulling.

But I digress. I love to share what I am creating and selling, whether it be a pattern to make one of my figures or supplies to have a go yourself, or letting you know which dolls are listed for sale on my Etsy store : “Not Carved In Stone.” I also love to teach and offer workshops and tutorials through my web site and others.

I love to share. I do that through the blog, which keeps you up to date with what’s sewing on at the studio. And yes, I have a studio. What a lucky person I am!! Space in which to create. Well, some of my costumes do take up a lot of space!

So enjoy what I share with you, as I enjoy the sharing. I love your comments and feedback.

What else am I interested in? I am fascinated with Steampunk and things with holes in them, like lotus pods. I have to stroke anything soft, love dogs and chocolate, of course!

My work has been featured in books, such as “1000 Artisan textiles” and magazines such as “Dolls,” “Soft Dolls and Animals” and “Art Doll Quarterly.” I have also been featured on TV, with my own spot on a regional arts program. I have also won awards for my art dolls in competitions and show my work at art shows each year.

If you like something you see but would like it customized in some way, I’d be happy to convo with you and create a one of a kind piece especially for you.

Creatively yours,
Edwina
