Pict Pocket, fun functional textiles using part-natural, part-recycled materials.
A visual artist and maker working mostly in textiles and reclaimed art, specialising in Scottish harbour scenes.
I work mainly in woven tapestry and printmaking. The imagery used in the works is essentially abstract in character. I work in a variety of scales from miniature to large scale.
Inspired by Scottish themes and textile, it's all about tradition with a twist.
I am a weaver and I live and work in Westray Orkney. I trained at Shetland College on their Contemporary Textiles course.
I enjoy the whole process of weaving from the initial idea, through the designing the warp and setting up of the loom to the actual weaving and then the grand finale of taking the textile off the loom and finishing it.
I produce traditional knitwear in yarn sourced in Scotland. I produce 100% Shetland sweaters which can be in fairisle, hand embroidered with leather applique (all of which are individual) or they can be left plain. My 100% Cashmere ranges from scarves and wraps to sweaters in 4ply.
