Rachael Prime - Embroidery Artist
Rachael graduated from Glyndwr University with a BA in Illustration using embroidery to create her work. She then dived into the world of costumes going back into education to expand her skills at Liverpool College. After completing this course, she went on to create costumes for films and stage. She never strayed too far from the visual arts using her embroidery skills on her costumes designs and after joining Hazlehurst Studios, Rachael started to create portraits, jewellery and other work. She has now begun to explore the role of narrative within her work expanding her practice to include digital machine embroidery combining with the more traditional techniques of hand and free-hand embroidery. Rachael also has years of experience of working closely with the community, running a number of workshops within Halton’s various community facilities. Her workshops have ranged from visual arts with children and adults, Coding with young people, Dementia reminisce sessions and of course embroidery demonstrations.
