Expect the unexpected in hand printed textiles

Reece Scannell came into the textile business after an illustrious international career as a photographer with his pictures featuring in premier exhibitions in Australia and Europe.

His passion for fashion lured him from behind the lens, but Reece has applied a similar focus on unique, one-off imagery in hand screening textiles for clothing, interior design, quilting, patchwork and other forms of crafting.

Reece’s textile work is as fascinating as his background with his photographs being featured in renowned collections at the National Library of Australia, the Australian Film Institute and the Australian Film, Television and Radio School.

He has even participated in archaeological expeditions to Greece and Egypt with resulting photographic exhibitions in the British Museum.

Reece Scannell Mode in Australia is now ranked in the top Australian design companies with his outstanding creativity in lifestyle fabrics, including hand woven shot cotton with individual threads dyed to create a distinctive silky sheen effect.

“I have advanced the traditional method of manually developing photographs in a dark room to create individual hand printed fabrics to distinctive designs, including a lot of botanical imagery,” he said.

“The designs are a fusion of photography, drawing, painting and sculpture on textile. Nothing is mass produced.”

Reece said visitors to the Sewing, Stitching and Handcraft Show could “expect the unexpected” with his captivating range of fabrics.

Joining him at the show will be acclaimed quilter Jan Frazer, whose award winning art quilts have been displayed across Australia and overseas.

Using textiles from Reece Scannell Mode in Australia, Jan designs inspiring quilts with her inspirational methods of embracing colour for special effects.

Meet these fascinating textile identities and enjoy their creativity at site S73 in the Goyder Pavilion.
