Edgerley enjoys exploring a variety of textile techniques. One of those techniques is deconstructed screen-printing. Using various textured materials, thickened dye, and a silkscreen, an image is created and screened onto fabric. After processing, the fabric is layered with a thin batting and free motion machine quilted.
