Tree kits - textile landscapes in a box
Textile art in a box! By UK maker, textile artist & tutor Imogen Bittner Based on two of my landscapes, The Tree Kits provide all the materials needed to make a complete picture whilst allowing the user to add their own touches; embroidery, hand or machine, if they wish. The step by step instructions with photographs, correspond to specific selected fabrics in the kit, which can be applied using an electric or hand sewing machine or simply by hand if preferred. Once completed, the landscape is backed using the fabric provided. I display my work framed with a mount, behind glass. This protects from dust and also holds any loose fabrics in place - for example threads used to depict grasses in the foreground.

Although I graduated with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art (painting) from West Surrey College of Art and obtained an MA Fine Art (sculpture) from the Arts University Bournemouth, I have always enjoyed working with textiles and have done so for more than 45 years. I am a practising artist and exhibit regularly as a member of the salon group of Dorset Visual Arts and Wessex Contemporary Arts as well as in larger collective exhibitions.
