Laura Cameron - Lost In The Wood
Caernarfon, North Wales, Wales
I am a textile artist using crochet and needle felting to create colourful pieces which reflect my fascination with anatomy, medical history and the natural world. My range of medically-inspired brooches and wall art are intended as an engaging way of taking things which are usually hidden and showing them to be vibrant and visible. I enjoy subverting the expectations that usually accompany woolly crafts. My work aims to challenge the artificial distinction between art and craft, in a playful manner, as well as being a place where art and science meet.

Moira Third - Imagine north
Glenmuick Aberdeenshire
A Fine Art graduate using thread as my medium, I create embroidered artworks. Working in Glenmuick, a beautiful, wild highland Glen I am influenced by the landscape, songs and folktales of the North. I begin by painting onto Artist’s canvas using Acrylic paints, then layer with millions of tiny stitches, using just the needle, guided by hand on my domestic sewing machine. Each finished piece hiding its secret painting, bathed in moonlight, quiet and contemplative, their stillness reminds us to stop and reconnect with where and who we are, a sense of simplicity is at the heart of my work.

Mairi Brown
Edinburgh, Scotland
I am a textile artist working with free-machine embroidery to decorate the clothing and soft furnishings that I make, mainly on a commission basis. Inspired by flora and fauna I study the details of each animal or flower to recreate it in stitch. The rich colours and way that light catches on say a bird’s wing or lilies petal is recreated with my process of drawing and painting with thread. 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.
