Summer Artfest ’16 – Saturday 18th June – Inverkeithing Civic Centre
Boxoftrix is a textile and mixed media artist, offering a selection of embroidered art and accessories using silk, Harris tweed, vintage lace and crochet, wool blankets, denim, sheet music, vintage stamps and embellishments. The results are delightful treats for yourself or make beautiful and thoughtful gifts.
Tom Bishop-de-Main will be at the Artfest ’16 Summer Art & Craft Market on Saturday 18th June, 11am-4.30pm at the Inverkeithing Civic Centre, Queen Street.
Boxoftrix handmakes unique and exquisite embroidered framed art, textile jewellery and accessories made from recycled wool blankets, vintage crochet, old denim jeans, and many of the pieces are embellished and hand embroidered. As well as fabric items Boxoftrix make greetings cards and paper bunting from recycled maps and sheet music.
“I like to recycle as much as possible in my work to keep costs low, benefiting everyone. I am just a small creative business making whatever I take a notion to do and reusing and repurposing what I have.”
