OPEN STUDIOS CAVERSHAM 2010
Vicky Baker trained at Wimbledon School of Art & Design, and comes from a background of 15 years experience as a freelance designer/ maker for Theatre and Film. Vicky has developed individual hand made handbags, with a strong sense of form and line built in a unique fabric: laminated linen; using a layering technique synthesized from the maker’s experience in theatrical costume design and construction, making them strong and durable, dyed and lined in silk, to a high standard of finish. This technique has been extended in work using suede and leather appliqué and more recently some designs purely in leather/suede. Vicky also designs and makes silver and acrylic jewellery, embroidered and appliquéd silk and linen cushions. Vicky lives in Caversham and has been involved in promoting local Caversham artists at Studio 21 for four years.
