What a great way of having a keepsake for that special occasion. A cross-stitch golden wedding card or a cross-stitch sampler for your wedding day or your baby's birth or even just your own birthday. I also make bookmarks for young and old, pleasure cards, keyrings, coasters, pictures, samplers etc. I can make whatever you want.
I work with heavy vegetable tan leathers and pig suedes, creating designs, forms and colours from dreams, making Celties and Funkyz – traditional and contemporary ranges of handbags and purses.
My textile practice has evolved through experimenting with materials and methods of making in which hand work and craftsmanship provide both direction and context.
Hand skills are transposed though the work in a humorous commentary on social and textile history within the contemporary gallery.
I work with fabric collage and will be showing framed and unframed pieces using stitch, imprints and transferred images on transparent layers.
From the Bothy Studio in Fife, Di Gilpin creates beautiful, sculptural hand-knits for personal clients, international fashion houses and her own DIY knitting kits.
My passion is making books – journals and notebooks constructed with simple, non-adhesive bindings using leathers and handmade papers.
