Ailidh Lennon
Isle of Iona, Scotland
Ailidh Lennon is a weaver and plant dyer who uses traditional techniques to interpret the abstract shapes and shifting shades from the landscape into her handwoven, sustainable textiles that are bound to the landscape of her home, the Isle of Iona. Using single-origin yarn from local sheep, Ailidh works with the natural fleece colour and hand dyes the yarn with plants and lichen gathered on the island. The colours depend on the changing environmental factors of the season, allowing the natural elements to influence the design process and enabling her to be an active participant in the more-than-human habitat.

Ailsa Lishman
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.

Clarabella Christie

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.

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.

Jenny Findlay 
Edinburgh, Scotland
Texture and pattern have always held a lifelong fascination for me. Studying Textiles at Ravensbourne and then Camberwell College of Arts gave me a further opportunity for research and insight into surface design and construction of cloth. I Began to develop a wide interest in applied arts and design. However, print has been my enduring passion since graduating. Etching, Collagraph, monoprint and relief techniques and more recently a return to screen printing. I have worked in Contemporary Galleries; CCA Galleries, Cambridge. Edinburgh Printmakers, Dovecot Studios, all of which contributed to my interest and development in working with contemporary artists either through installation of exhibitions or organising events & educational programmes. This has in turn brought me full circle to return to teaching and making and designing Art Textiles.

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.

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.

Paper Houses Design
Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Paper Houses Design is a textiles lifestyle brand, creating bold patterns on everyday products by Mhairi Allan. It starts with a wander, looking for inspiration often from man-made structures in the landscape. These overlooked structures are explored through media and developed into patterns. The new collection FORM looked at brutalist elements, these are often thought of as harsh and ugly but perceptions can change when forms swap textures or alter colour. 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.

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.
