RobyWorkshop

Contemporary Textile Art and Sustainable Accessories

Stockport, England

Announcement    Hi! I'm Wendy, a textile artist and sustainable maker based in Stockport. I have been obsessed with pattern, textiles, sewing and construction since I was a child, when I learned to make things using tools from my father's garage. When he died, I left a career in music journalism and ghostwriting to focus on making things with my hands. Grief was a mighty catalyst for me and it prompted me to learn various forms of print-making, creative draping on the stand, shoe-making and woodwork. I also returned to my first sewing love; embroidery.

In the last 18 months I've moved into my own studio, sold at art fairs, had my first solo exhibition (over 20 works, it ran for 6 weeks) and had my textile pieces shown at exhibitions and galleries such as the Cotton On 'In Manchester' exhibition (2022) and the Air Open 2022 (1250 works were entered, 30 were picked). It has been a wild ride and I am delighted to share the results with you.

Follow me on Insta at @roby_workshop and do message me if you're curious about any of items listed here, or if you'd like to chat about a special commission.

What Does This Button Do?

The above is painted in very large letters on my studio wall. It's a reminder to always experiment and be curious so that I can find new construction techniques or ways to use materials that might otherwise go into landfill.
