Adore Adorn

My name is Karen Teal and after teaching Art and Textiles for 33 years in Secondary and FE education in Wales 26 years , China 6 years and Switzerland 2 years I returned home to Wales in 2018 and created Adore Adorn to facilitate textiles and art workshops in the community and in schools but also to begin my own creative process again.
I create unique textiles pieces for you to Adore and Adorn.
I work with rusted objects that I find in the local Welsh countryside and villages whilst out on walks and I use these to create individual unique one-off pieces of textiles. I also believe in reusing fabrics and materials, and the brooches that I create use rust dyed silk embellished with vintage lace, beads and buttons.

My pieces of textile art incorporate my love of Art and Textiles, using my eco printing, rust silk dying and stitch to create a visual delight.
My fabric coiled vessels can be plain or with complex embellishments and these are made from clothing fabrics from friends, family and charity shops recycling the fabric for the vessel’s construction and the buttons etc for the embellishments.
Everything I produce is a one off unique individual piece there are no two the same.
