Lily A I Menaul
BA (Hons) Textile Design
Norwich based textile artist, designer-maker Lily A I Menaul conveys her fascination with heirloom culture and a deeply rooted obsession with giving materials a second life; My Love is Fix’d, seeks to bridge the gap between past and future through meditative traditional crafts such as knit, crochet and spinning; deeply personal exploration into the meaning of personal identity.
Sustainability and a zero waste circular design approach integrally underpin her work; working solely with second hand and heirloom materials with previous lives they are drawn together into a symphony of colour, texture and sentimentality exploring deeply personal connotations of self-knowledge and discovery aiming to evoke feelings of nostalgic joy, intimacy and comfort.
My Love is Fix’d has received two industry awards; Textile Maker award – Wavey Yarns, Creative Concept Award – East Anglia Art Fund.
