Amber Coppings

Textile arts are my driving passion. All my creations have roots in a journey to Japan where I learned about shibori fabric dyeing and hands-on surface pattern for textiles. Now, I’m exploring digital surface pattern using collage, digital drawing and photography with a goal of releasing a full line of fabrics and gift wrap.

I’ve been successfully selling my line of Xmittens creative streetwear accessories on Etsy since 2008. Customers from 38 countries have purchased one of my creations including shops that carry my work in Spain and Italy. I have taught through my own studio in Lawrenceville area of Pittsburgh, as well as at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Society for Contemporary Craft and other Pittsburgh area organizations. My work has been featured on Pittsburgh Today Live, Time Out NY, American Craft Council’s website, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, SHADY AVE magazine, Dharmatrading.com and many other super cool press outlets.
