Tapestries lend warmth, colour and texture to any environment, especially buildings made in modern materials such as marble, chrome, glass and concrete. Add to that the fact that they can be made on an impressive scale, and you’ll see why many companies and individuals choose them for prominent locations. Others enjoy them in a domestic setting.
At Ivory Tapestries, we make a wide variety of handmade, one-off textile and paper works of art, often to commission. They can be designed by Joanne Soroka or by the artist of your choice. They can be tiny or huge, up to eight feet by fifteen feet (2.5 m x 4.5 m). They can be tapestries, paperworks or other types of textile. The choice is yours.
Small paperworks start at £250 and tapestries at £1000. We are happy to give you a quotation for a particular project you may have in mind. There are also stock tapestries, paperworks and other textiles available (see Work Available list). A free brochure can also be sent on request.
Joanne Soroka has been making tapestries for over forty years. She is a graduate of McGill University, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and Edinburgh College of Art. She has won many prizes and grants, is a professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists and is listed on the prestigious Crafts Directory of the Crafts Council. Her work has been included in numerous group and solo exhibitions around the world. It is in a wide variety of public and private collections in the UK, the USA, Canada, Estonia and Japan.
Please get in touch if you are considering commissioning or buying a textile work of art, or if you would like to exhibit her work. She is flexible and open to suggestions. You might even want to visit the studio in Edinburgh. We look forward to hearing from you.
