Aimee Betts is a Mixed Media Embroidery Designer & Creator of Adornments, who is bringing the traditions of embroidery to the forefront of contemporary design. Aimee's diverse practice has been represented within the fields of Fashion, Interior Design, Visual Art & Contemporary Craft.
Discontent with ready-made materials, she often prefers to construct her own embellishments & embroidery cords whenever possible by using fast industrial processes such as digital embroidery & circular knitting machine technology, & combining them with the slower processes of hand embroidery & stitch.
It is crucial for Aimee to alter the appearance & structure of the materials at every stage of production. The end result is often an intense & richly crafted object, which has evolved through Aimee's distinctive & persistent way of working.
Aimee graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2010 with an MA in Mixed Media Textiles. She is a Specialist Stitch Technician at Chelsea College of Art & Design, & is a Visiting Tutor on the BA Textile Design course at Arts University Bournemouth. Finally, Aimee is an alumni member of the Crafts Council UK Hothouse 2011 Programme for Emerging Designer Makers.
