About Lora Avedian

Lora Avedian is a multidisciplinary artist, who graduated with a Masters in Mixed Media Textiles from the Royal College of Art in 2017. Lora uses traditional embroidery and embellishment techniques to make modern artefacts, which look as beautiful on the body as they do on a wall. Lora’s process begins with research, often looking at historical textiles and ethnographic objects as a starting point. Her work is grounded in history which enables her to create innovative work which finds a balance between the old and the new. Inspired by ceremonies and folk costume; the symbolism of the objects, colours and embroidery techniques used throughout her work are all important in telling her visual story.
