West Yorkshire, England.
I’m a printed textile designer who specialises in the traditional method of screen print to create a range of contemporary prints for a range of products. Intrigued by the shapes and patterns that surround us in the everyday, I draw my inspirations from these to create graphic and abstract surface pattern prints. I enjoy experimenting with a whole variety of colour combinations, from sophisticated subtle palettes to bright and bold. Each one of my products is unique as they are all hand made from start to finish and no two prints are ever exactly the same.

Anna Skea
Morar, Scotland
I live in the North West Highlands of Scotland and I have always loved this area and the way of life here. Crofting and fishing were the main industries when I was growing up. We had a wealth of colour and form around us to inspire. Having parents who were involved with woodcarving, pottery and sculpture we were encouraged to notice our surroundings. My medium is yarn in 100% wool and wool/cashmere and wool/cotton mixes. The Scottish lambswool that I work with is machine knitted , the pieces are linked together then fulled to make soft lightweight garments in the felted range.

Cora Studio
Edinburgh, Scotland
I am a knitted textile designer based in Edinburgh, designing and producing a range of knitted cashmere accessories including scarves, hats and blankets. I have been working within Scottish textiles manufacturing for 12 years and I take a lot of inspiration from the traditional processes and techniques the industry is known for. I combine this with a focus on organic and graphic pattern interpreted into a fine gauge knit. My main source of visual inspiration comes from the natural landscape - observing the patterns formed at every level and taking pleasure in the detail and repetition of shape and form at both a micro and macro level. This is developed into jacquard knit patterns through hand drawing in order to maintain an organic and irregular feel. I balance all of this with a touch of geometric inspired pattern and plain colour to create a collection of varied elements.

Hollie Ward
London, England
Cultivated by an intrigue into what it is to “feel”, I create what I refer to as artefacts. Artefacts to live in and with. Each product is woven and sewn by one pair of hands after thorough exploration surrounding each material. Questioning the way in which we form relationships and attachments to objects in which we as humans cannot always understand. An interest in DIY culture from a young age guided my process, an act of rebellion through making. Exploring how we can rebel against what is expected, what is assumed and what we are told we should be.

Mairi Brown
Edinburgh, Scotland
My work focuses on taking the smallest detail of flora and fauna under a microscope, examining how it can be realised in rich colours which catch the light, and transforming it into a beautiful portable or wearable work of art using the technique of free machine embroidery. The process of drawing and painting with thread, the build up of stitched texture on fabric to create an image never stops being a joy. Each piece becomes a little treasure reminding the wearer or owner of how precious our wildlife is and how surprising colours can be found in everyday creatures and plants.

Marna Lunt
Yarm, North East England
I am a fine artist that has changed mediums from oil paint to threads, inspired by the landscape from my childhood home on the North Yorkshire Moors. I use thread in thick layers as though it was paint, building texture and colour with wool, linen, cotton both old and new, hand dyed and modern synthetic colours. I have a unique style of thread painting not based on traditional silk shading but on my own feeling about depth and my years of training as a painter. It is important to me to create the right feeling both mentally with a piece but also physically. I like a piece to feel weighty in the hand, to have presence and substance. I want people to feel a need to reached out and touch it. All work starts as a drawing and is stitched entirely by hand, no machines are used.

Muffy Young
Waltham Massachusetts, USA
I have been a hand weaver and dyer since 1978. These scarves and shawls are all hand woven and hand dyed. My looms have 24 and 32 harnesses instead of the more usual 4 or 8. This allows me to design highly complex structures, and to combine them in a single piece for intriguing variations in scale, texture, and motif. My designs are original, unique, and innovative, with images inspired by nature, modernism, and the fabrics of Latin America, Central Asia, and Africa. Guided by the weave structure, I select silk fibres to maximise visual impact and to balance drape and stability. Hand-dying my yarns gives me complete control of my colour palette. My passion is to create refined scarves and shawls that are beautiful to look at and comfortable to wear.

Olla Nua – Handwoven by Nicola Gates
Belfast, Northern Ireland
The name Olla Nua comes from the Irish words for ‘new wool’, reflecting my aim to use this traditional material in a modern and imaginative way. I weave my cloth on wooden floor looms, powered entirely by hand and foot, using a range of yarns spun in Ireland and the UK. I’m fascinated by the natural properties of wool – its tactility, ability to insulate and how the fibre can change subtly or drastically depending on how it is manipulated by the maker. Just as I love working with wool, I hope these textiles bring comfort and a sense of home to the user wherever they travel.

All collections are made consciously, honing craft knowledge and modern technology to be sustainable. Patterns are designed to transcend seasons and products are created to be practical.

PickOne
Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland
My own private work is evolutionary, moving along at an irregular pace, adopting new symbolism and meaning where appropriate and dropping less important images once they have outlived their usefulness. Weaving is a process of growth, the natural way in which one activity flows into another until finally one begins the physical act of weaving. I take pleasure from the way cloth grows before me, the fluid movement of one cloth evolving into the next. Finding this flexibility on a fairly rigid structure is also one of the pleasurable challenges of weaving. This is a never-ending journey of discovery.

Red Ruby Rose
Big Sand, Gairloch, Ross-Shire, Scotland
I wade through boggy lochans and poke my camera into ditches to capture the tiny floral jewels and treasures that make up the macro landscapes of North West Scotland. This hands-on approach to image making translates onto fine digitally printed dupion silks and sumptuous velvets, capturing the photographic detail of mosses, shells, lichens and delicate peatland wild flowers. Every fabric piece is handmade into bags, clutches and accessories by my own hands, using my vintage Husqvarna sewing machine.

Ruth Harries Textiles
Cardiff Wales
My work encompasses many themes and mediums; often inspired by my identity and observations from my surroundings. The recent lockdown period has encouraged a body of work with an appreciation and development of rich studies on the theme of the garden and flora. It looks at the diverse qualities of mark making produced by drawing and painting considered through stitch and fabric. It is an appreciation of the quality of thread and the medium. Often working directly; letting it grow and develop intuitively and spontaneously, I use hand and free machine stitch, as well as fabric collage, where dense layers are built up, achieving subtle variations in tone in a free and expressive way.

Shaun James
Cardiff Wales
The name 'Things in the Studio' developed out of the way in which I produce my prints, and my artwork in general. My studio is full to the brim with stuff. Bits and pieces that I have acquired over time and that have come to accumulate in my space. These things are the material of my work. My practice revolves around and moves forward through my interactions with this stuff. My making happens in reaction to these collected materials; these objects, these fragments that surround me and inform me. The way that I make things is through mutual dialogue with these materials. A lot of the time that just means playing and seeing what happens. Things seem to eventually come together.

Susie Redman Handwoven
Burntisland , Fife, Scotland
When I was given a traditional floor loom a few years ago, I started upon a weaving journey. I learned weaving skills at a Swedish weaving school and with Pick-One Weave, Edinburgh. I weave homewares and wearables on a traditional Swedish floor loom, in my studio in Burntisland. My inspiration comes from the local environment and Scandinavian textile design and colour palate. I enjoy giving these traditional weaving patterns a more contemporary aesthetic. I weave with luxurious yarns such as fine merino lambs wool, cotton and linen, organic where possible, to create table runners, rugs, cushions, blankets and throws and also scarves and wraps. Each piece is designed, woven and finished by me in my studio. Each piece is unique as I weave just a few of any design and each one has a different colour way or pattern.

Westcoast Weavers
Ellishadder, Isle of Skye, Scotland
A windswept croft, on the Hebridean Isle of Skye; the home of Westcoast Weavers. Inspired by the rugged landscape and the soft muted colours of Skye, we weave on traditional handlooms using natural fibres, to create heirloom quality pieces for you and your home. “I would be about 13 or 14 when I saw an advert in the local paper for an evening course in weaving at the local village hall. I remember the excitement of producing my first piece of cloth, that wondrous feeling of seeing it slowly unroll off the front beam. Something just clicked with me and weaving; I immediately loved it. My lovely Dad made my first loom until I’d saved up enough money, from Saturday and holiday jobs, to buy my first ‘proper’ loom. Weaving quickly became a passion that I later developed in textile projects at school and then at college. It was whilst I was at college, studying weaving at Cumbria College of Art and Design, that I first visited Skye, with a group of friends. I knew, almost immediately that this was where I would live one day. It was following a couple of years working in a weaving mill in Carlisle, where head shawls for the Saudi’s were woven, (yes the red and white ones!) a post graduate degree and then 10 years of teaching Art and Textiles in Northumberland, that I moved to Skye to weave full time. I set up our business in the autumn of 2011 and spent that winter weaving and making stock in readiness for opening the studio and gallery, in the spring of 2012
