Miesje Chafer is a screen printer, maker and embroidery artist based in Southsea, Hampshire. She hand prints fabric in bold, bright, geometric designs which she then uses to create a range of products including purses, cushions, eye pillows and hair accessories. In order to reduce waste as much as possible, Miesje started using her offcuts to create unique pieces of patchwork, which encapsulate her iconic bold style.
More recently, Miesje discovered her love of embroidery, which has led her to create not only her own embroidery kits but has also opened a whole new world of materials and processes with which she can create work. She has been exploring combining printing, patchwork and embroidery to produce one-off pieces of stitched work. Find more examples of Miesje’s work on her website.
