16 May Pia Aitken
Pia Aitken is a textile artist with a passion for retro. She has been sewing since she was eight and has taken it up again recently with new fervour.
“I was so happy to see ‘vintage’ come back in vogue,” she said. Subsequently, many of her pieces have a distinctly vintage inspiration. She loves coming up with new ideas and experimenting with different styles out of the array of materials available.
Pia has been teaching sewing to her granddaughters, who are loving it, and is buoyed by the concept of encouraging the teaching of a craft to young people.
Pia currently has a range of bags and cushions on offer in the gallery.
