Saffron Craig: Meet a Textile-phile

HIGHRES
Create your own unique fabrics with screen printing.

 


Saffron CraigFABRIC DESIGNER Saffron Craig loves creating and fabric is her ‘thing’. When studying at RMIT University Saffron took all the textile courses on offer, learning everything from knitting to printmaking, tailoring to weaving. As a budding fashion designer, she was constantly hand dyeing silk and printing fabrics for her couture. So by the time her mother-in-law ignited a passion for patchwork some years later, designing bespoke fabrics was second nature to Saffron. She promptly began hand-cutting screens to print fabrics for her quilts and a fabric line followed. These days, Saffron is devoting more time to teaching people how to screen print, dye and paint their own fabrics.

In 2012 she was selected as one of 10 artists to design a bespoke illustration for Lego’s 50 year anniversary in Australia. Saffron’s most recent works are inspired by the landscape of the Margaret River in remote Western Australia, a place where the famous desert wild flowers grow.

  1. I am thrilled to read that Saffron will be at the Psrth Show. I have always found her work to be so joyous and exciting. She is a great original artist, always willing to push the boundaries. Not only is she very creative but she is also one of the loveliest people you will ever meet. I have met her a few times and have always found her delightful. Enjoy this artist Perth.
