Clare Youngs is a designer maker working with paper and fabric making beautiful handcrafted objects. She spreads her busy and exciting working time between writing books, running workshops and creating artworks from her studio in Broadstairs, Kent.
'Whether I am printing, cutting and folding paper, sewing or embroidering, I take inspiration from all aspects of handicraft techniques, traditional and contemporary. My desire to create has never been stronger than now. I love the whole process, the thrill of a new project, the thoughts and ideas that start as notes and sketches and the satisfaction of seeing my ideas develop into a finished piece. I think everyone can be creative and through my work and ideas I hope I can encourage more and more to get making and release the artist within!'
