Maggie Pearson is a textile artist living and practising in Liverpool. In her botanical printing, she uses leaves principally from the City of Liverpool to create unique, hand printed designs on natural fibres.... fabric and paper. She draws her inspiration from Liverpool's rich natural environment and its exotic botanical diversity, which reflects the city's trading history.
Each of Maggie's unique pieces is individually designed and 'eco-printed' by hand. She bundles locally grown flowers and leaves with natural fibres and steams them over water, or simmers them in a dye bath, to create her unique prints. She also makes and uses natural dyes.
Maggie delivers workshops which are an introduction to botanical printing and also undertakes commissions.
"I bought a scarf from Maggie and gave it to a friend as a present. She absolutely loves it and its subtle tones, and has worn it ever since."
