Carole Sprickerhoff - Textile & Furniture Designer

Carole Sprickerhoff is a mature student returning to her education and following her passion for textiles, biology, interior decorating and getting messy in the studio. She is interested in screen printing, natural dyes and Japanese-inspired textile methods. Carole has been passionate about plants and gardening since childhood, she hopes to create a dye garden and has been investigating growing her own fibres from scratch, which she hopes to spin and weave into her own bespoke fabrics. Before Craft & Design, she was pursuing a diploma in Interior Decorating, lots of what she learnt in that program is relevant to her work in textiles and furniture.


I have been sewing for over 40 years, with techniques being taught to me by my surrogate mother. These skills allowed me to follow my passion into quilting, which I have been practicing since. With extensive travel around the world, I often visit fabric and textile stores and museums hoping to find inspiration and possibly take home part of the cultures and experiences to add into my textile creations. Through this travel and exploration of cultures, I found a desire to design and create my own prints, colourways, and fabrics.

With inspiration from the Japanese tradition of Boro boro, the practice of laying used and worn fabrics to create a sustainable approach to clothing, home goods (among others) this allows for a cyclical environment of sustainability in the reuse of discarded and pre-loved fabrics, which I hope to incorporate into my own work in an effort to become more sustainable and to give these fabrics new life.
