Stunning Animals Embroidered by Hand Using Colored and Metallic Thread

Aug 27, 2019


Laura Baverstock is a specialist hand embroiderer, textile artist, and illustrator who mixes traditional stitching techniques with her contemporary design practice. She creates embellished designs and bespoke pieces with modern materials and embroidery adding texture and interest.

Laura graduated with a BA (Hons) Degree in Hand Embroidery for Fashion, Interiors and Textile Art from The Royal School of Needlework.

If you watched last year’s Mary Queen of Scots, you saw Baverstock’s embroidery work on the actors’ outfits, which earned an Oscar nomination for costume designer Alexandra Byrne.

Laura Baverstock is a specialist hand embroiderer, textile artist and illustrator who mixes traditional stitching techniques with her contemporary design practice. She creates embellished designs and bespoke pieces with modern materials and embroidery adding texture and interest. Her use of strong shapes and silhouettes are contrasted against refined and delicate detail.

Her inspiration stems from both the natural world and structural man-made objects. She uses illustrative work and photography to investigate her subject and develop her ideas into realised embroidery pieces. Laura graduated with a BA (Hons) Degree in Hand Embroidery for Fashion, Interiors and Textile Art from The Royal School of Needlework.

Goldwork is a particular technique Laura favours within her own design practice, and she was awarded membership to the Worshipful Company of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers in 2016 as a Trade Freeman.

Laura’s own commission pieces have been sold internationally, and she also has embroidery and design experience from multiple markets including couture, costume, womenswear, menswear and interiors. She has worked for clients such as Nicholas Oakwell Couture for the GREAT British Industry campaign, Alexander McQueen, HBO and Legendary Entertainment. Her costume work can be seen in Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ and Josie Rourke’s upcoming release ‘Mary Queen of Scots’.

Real gold and silver threads are incredibly delicate and difficult to work with, you won't be running them threw a sewing machine.
