Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886): An American poet. Little-known during her life, she has since been regarded as one of the most important figures in American poetry. She challenged the existing definitions of poetry, she experimented with expression in order to free it from conventional restraints. Like writers such as Charlotte Bronte, she crafted a new type of persona for the first person. Her writing expressed what was possible but not yet realised.
These charming Fabric Folk Kits are part of an ongoing collaboration between The Shop Floor Project and paper-cut artist Amanda White. Celebrating important figures throughout history the collection includes: Picasso, William Morris, Beatrix Potter, Caroline Herschel the astrologer, Charles Dickens, Emily Dickinson, Frida Kahlo, Marie Antoinette, Oscar Wilde, Queen Elizabeth I, Dido Belle, Mary Anning the fossil hunter, writers Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters Anne, Charlotte and Emily.
Amanda White’s celebrated collages of portraits and historical houses bring together her love of old buildings and literature. Trained as a theatre designer, each paper cut feels like a set design or sketch for a costume, each one drawing you into the scene and finding more, as you take in all the detail.
