Emily & Sarah Parkinson

Emily and Sarah Parkinson are the artists/sisters/collaborators behind Homebody Textiles, a small studio that specializes in always-patterned, always-playful home goods and accessories. Their work brings together a love for hands-on engagement, a keen eye for balance and rhythm, and a deep fascination with the natural world. Their chosen process (screen printing) and materials (natural dyes) force them to work at the intersection of loose and laborious, and to keep the compass fixed firmly on experimentation. They have taught at Penland School of Craft in NC and Snow Farm in MA, have exhibited their work at the Growing Color Symposium and the American Craft Council’s Atlanta/Southeast CraftWeek, and have appeared in publications including “Uppercase Magazine” and “Nature’s Colorways: Conjuring the Chemistry and Culture of Natural Dyes."
