About the Tutor: Aimee Betts is a Mixed Media Textile Designer specialising in embroidery and braiding. She produces one off bespoke products for interiors and seasonal jewellery collections, working from her home studio in South East London. Aimee’s work explores the parallels and cross overs between traditional knotting, braiding and hand embroidery techniques. She takes inspiration from a variety of books, studying the details of leather craft, sailor’s knots to the A-Z of embroidery.

Every project begins with a research trip wandering through international museums and galleries. Here she analyses historic artefacts and architectural details to uncover hidden stories that trigger her imagination.

Aimee can apply her craft to hard and soft surfaces, adapting her braiding and embroidery techniques so they sit comfortably onto forms and interior fabrics. These combined techniques along with Aimee’s perceptive eye for colour and materials are used to create her distinct collections of pull handles, lighting, mirrors, soft furnishings, tassels and jewellery.
