Jan Kilpatrick is a well-known teacher of mosaic, embroidered textiles and creative book-making. From her studio in Elphin, 20 minutes drive north of Ullapool, she also produces one-off pieces of mosaic; short runs of hand-printed, embroidered textile goods such as cushions and bags; hand-printed cards; hand-made paper and blank books. Most of her work uses recycled and natural materials and she draws her imagery from the natural environment, increasingly incorporating lyrical text from her own poetry.
Jane Keith produces contemporary hand-printed textiles from studios in Dundee and North Fife. She is best known for her contemporary range of hand printed ties. The ties have a strong client following and are regularly seen on TV presenters, celebrities, actors and politicians around the globe.
Jane Keith also produces large colourful hand painted silk wall hangings made to commission. They are built up using a complex layering process of varying types of dyes, pigments and processes, combining cutting edge technology with traditional applications.

I studied at Oregon State University for the 3rd year of my Hons Degree from Grays School of art. It was at O.S.U. I first experienced fibre art and textiles as a fine art discipline rather than design.
I have continued to experiment with fibre arts, particularly papermaking, and have been self-employed since graduating with an MA from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1992. I have completed many residencies including 5 months in Taiwan at the Chayoyang University and the Su-Ho Paper Museum.

From brooches to bags and collage to screen prints, Judys work is playful and light-hearted. She uses a mix of media, creating collaged pieces from new and found ephemera, fabric, paint, stitch and paper and her screen prints are created by using vintage images and her own artwork. Each piece is individually made in her home in Kinross.
