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
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.

Helen Ruth
Aberdeen Scotland
Helen Ruth is a luxury accessories label specialising in digitally printed silk and wool scarves, printed and hand-finished in Scotland. Each scarf starts with original hand-drawn illustrations, usually in pen and ink. These artworks are then converted to digital files to be coloured, repeated, mirror imaged, collaged and combined with found imagery and photography to create the intricate and layered prints of the scarves. Each scarf tells its own story – a well known and loved tale, an old saying or a personal childhood memory, giving the wearer an emotional connection to the piece. Often spiking beautiful design and illustration with subtle sinister undertones, there is always more than meets the eye!

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.

Michaelson Design
Birchtree Ceres, Fife, Scotland
The Fife village of Ceres, where I am based, was once a centre of the Scottish linen industry, still visible in converted, or deserted, spinning mills and weavers’ cottages that abound in the area, with the last working linen mill in Scotland, Victoria Linen Works Ltd, still weaving in nearby Kirkcaldy. I have investigated and documented the surviving traces of that industry since moving here and many of the items on offer at CLOTH#20 carry images that celebrate this heritage, digitally printed on Scottish Linen and assembled into bags and accessories by Kalopsia in Edinburgh. Please check my Instagram for sales and contact details.

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.

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.

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.

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.
