Kate Whitehead Textiles

category:

I am a textile artist and designer specialising in weave and embroidery. I enjoy working with paper and poor materials such as Calico, muslin, scrim and salvaged fabrics. My work often involves patching and mending; it has a feel of materials found and restored to produce desirable and treasured pieces. I produce unconventional artefacts that can be worn, hung or framed. The work explores the possibilities in the forgotten, overlooked and abandoned.

Kate Wood has been making jewellery in one form or another since childhood. Largely self-taught, her work is informed by the natural world, tiny overlooked details, beautiful gemstones and a love of simple forms, aged finishes and vintage glamour.
After graduating with a French degree Kate worked as a museum archivist before launching her business in 2005. She started out selling her jewellery in London markets including Spitalfields and Portobello, where she developed her distinctively organic designs and began to attract the attention of boutiques and galleries.

Katherine Fortnum Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: Midlands   

Hand built decorative ceramic sculptures inspired by structures in nature and particularly delicate natural forms; created through playful experimentation, pushing the limits of the fragility of the clay qualities within the forms through the ceramic process. Interesting qualities emerged as I began using smaller elements creating complex structures which were much more delicate. Each unique piece is extremely challenging and time consuming to make as every element is individually constructed.
Katherine graduated with BA (Hons) in Design Crafts, specialising in ceramics; from DeMontfort University 2013. Her workshop is based in Leicestershire, England.

You can find Katherine’s work at craft fairs throughout the year or via her website; where you will find a range of functional ceramics; including homewares, vases, bowls, coasters and more. Commissions Welcomed.

Katherine runs Ceramics workshops which are great for anyone looking to learn a new skill whilst creating something beautiful and unique. Whether there’s a specific item you wish to make or simply just to have a play and explore the world of clay, there’s a range of workshops available designed around you.

I produce hand-painted decorative porcelain jugs, cups, cake stands and brooches using a variety of slip casting and hand-building techniques. Each piece is essentially a canvas for decoration and collage as I combine drawings with found ephemera. I am inspired by nostalgia, old paper ephemera, vintage textiles and a love of drawing. I am fascinated […]

region: South East   

I’m a mixed media textile artist. I use fabrics, threads, paper, paint, crochet, tatting, couching, free hand machine embroidery and appliqué combined sometimes with found items in my pieces. I love all things vintage, and the hidden beauty in the everyday thoroughly inspires me. I tend to frame or mount all my pieces.
I have a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Applied Art from the University of Hertfordshire, and graduated in 2011. I love to do commission work, working from a photo or an image, and am also very happy to customise any of my designs, changing fabrics and colours etc.

Katie Johnston

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

I make a range of colourful enamel jewellery inspired by nature and simple forms. The use of vitreous enamels provides me with the perfect medium to add vibrant colours to my designs and to play with different colour combinations. Inspiration comes from the many different forms, textures and patterns of the natural world, whether it’s a smooth beach pebble or a spiky teasel seed head.

Katie Keith Design

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Midlands   

I create soft furnishings from my original illustrations using traditional hand dyeing and hand printing techniques. I believe in creating products that are functional and beautiful and that can preserve the traditional methods and craftsmanship for modern British design. I have complete control over the production so I can achieve the textures and colours that makes my work unique.
I learnt the art of silk screen printing whilst studying my degree in Illustration at Plymouth University. I fell in love with the hands-on process which inspired me to create decorative work. Since then I have been experimenting with my designs and techniques to create unique designer craft work.
