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.

Clarabella Christie
Dunfermline, Fife
I am a surface designer and maker, I studied my craft at Glasgow School of Art. My studio looks out over the rooftops of Dunfermline and it has been this skyline, its patterns, shapes and rhythms that have inspired me to develop this collection of prints. My hometown has a rich architectural diversity and history. I am interested in the streets we walk down, the building above our eyeline and the everyday environment in which we live in towns and cities. I photograph, appliquéd and lino print the images that I capture and then manipulate them digitally to create interesting patterns. I use appliqué, machine embroidery and freeform patchwork to turn theses prints into unique one off bespoke pieces for clients as well as a ready-to-buy collection of colourful homewares and accessories. All my products are handmade by me in my studio, I am a detail freak and love the process of design to finished product. I sell my work in Art Galleries and Shops across the UK.

Collingwood-Norris
Galashiels, Scottish Borders, Scotland
Flora Collingwood-Norris designs and makes colourful knitwear from her small studio in Galashiels, using the finest natural fibres. Having inherited a love of colour from her mum, Flora’s colour choices are often inspired by the west coast of Scotland and the Scottish Borders landscape. Flora works with local mills to have some of her designs produced in small batches, but she still makes most of her designs herself, hand framing them on a vintage knitting machine, and hand finishing them to the highest standard. These are pieces designed to make you look and feel great!

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.

Migs Textiles
Edinburgh, Scotland
I make small collections of simple women’s clothing from my home studio in Edinburgh. I often work with acid dyes and silk noil, a combination I love as it produces rich vibrant colours and soft warm textures. I start my designs in a sketchbook, using paint to figure out colour combination and ratio. I then dye my fabrics using a dip-dye technique to create gradients of colour. The shape of my tops is influenced by the simple elegant cut of a Japanese kimono, this pattern enables me to use the whole width of the fabric thus creating very little waste. For fabrication I work with small batch manufacturer Kalopsia Collective.

Monica Boxely
Isleworth, west London, England
Monica has always had a passion for colour and style. Her mother was a milliner and earliest memories were of being in the workroom of a couture house in Mayfair in the equivalent of Fashion Week. Monica is constantly trying out new ideas on cloth... using a variety of methods including screen printing from photographs, and painting directly onto the fabric with dyes and paints and also the infinite possibilities of digital print. Travelling influences her work and many surface designs come directly from that. Her range of unique shirt / jackets are becoming collectibles. They will make you feel stylish with very little effort and allow you to stand out from the crowd.

Morag Macpherson
irkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
Originally from Glasgow and now residing in Kirkcudbright, South-west Scotland, Ive been creating surface patterns and patchworking unique and limited edition fabrics as a Textile Artist/Designer for 13 years. My previous life as a Graphic Designer was interesting. However I enjoy the variety my process of working gives me: my own photography researching concepts; simple line drawing; digital design; colouring and repeating patterns; abstract painting techniques and mark-making; patchworking. Inspiration comes form art history, diverse cultures and nature. My own travels are an integral part of the stories i patchwork. Colour is at the forefront of everything I do - I embrace it fearlessly to create my bold, bright fabrics.

Nielanell
Shetland, Scotland
My alternative Shetland knitwear is inspired by traditions and techniques from our islands’ textile heritage, but I follow my own design path—developing collections through connection with place, history and world culture, and using my passion for colour to create contemporary knitwear and my own handspun yarn. Nielanell knitwear is made in Shetland by craftspeople skilled in the art of machine knitting, using premium yarns. Every piece is hand-finished, in-house. My work has been shown at the Saatchi Gallery, and Decorex; in 2018 I was a design leader for V&A Dundee’s Scottish Design Relay, an inspiring programme for young people.

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.

Tessuti Scotland
Edinburgh, Scotland.
I studied at the Scottish College of Textiles in Galashiels situated in the Scottish Borders, graduating in 1984. The following year I set up my printed textile studio Tessuti Scotland in Edinburgh. From here I hand dye and hand silk screen print a range of distinctive fabrics and fashion accessories using natural fabrics - silk, lambswool, wool and cashmere. I print using the 'discharge' method which produces rich colours and retains the original soft handle of the fabrics. I'm inspired by the colours and motifs prevalent in mid-century design. I regularly exhibit at shows both nationally and internationally and undertake commissions also.
