Enid Marx (1902-1998)

Enid Marx originally trained as a painter at the Royal College of Art in the 1920s, after which time she worked briefly for Barron and Larcher's textile printing workshop in London. Marx then set up her own workshop in Hamstead. She cut her own blocks for printing fabrics and chose to work with natural dyes. She typically created simple, repeating patterns with abstract or floral motifs, and she also produced woven textile designs.
