Painting, Textile

Stephanie Symns

About the artist
ANTIPOD Workshop is a creative studio run by NZ native Stephanie Symns with a focus on the creation of original artwork, surface pattern design and limited-run textiles. Inspired by dramatic brushstrokes, the Bauhaus marriage of form + function, geometry and the juxtaposition of the natural and man-made world, ANTIPOD balances hands on techniques with an experimental approach to textile design. From painting, dyeing and printing to weaving; each day in the studio is different. Blending these processes with contemporary digital tools results in work that is at once modern and familiar. Textile goods produced include hand printed and woven pillows, custom upholstery and table-top textiles, limited-run hand-woven accessories and soon small runs of simple garments that showcase a series of vibrant patterns. Prototyping including sewing, hand printing and dyeing is completed in-house with an eye to high quality finishing and goods that are made to last. ANTIPOD creates custom items for events and interiors and holds workshops. Please get in touch or sign up online for the newsletter to keep up to date with what’s happening in the studio.
