Isabelle is a Masterbookbinder based at the OWL & LION, her specialty is 18th Century Leather Binding and marbling and printing traditional decorative papers.
Jane's silver and gold contemporary jewellery is deeply influenced by her interest in textiles, pattern and shape. She experiments using various techniques to achieve a surface form similar to fabric the designs have an unusual twist.
On the other hand her use of wire in the cage designs reflect a delicate timeless piece of jewellery which can be worn in various positions.
I am influenced by the simple lines of geometric forms and create contemporary designs made predominantly in silver.
I team the silver with non-precious materials, which often have a completely different use, thus changing them into wearable items of jewellery. Currently I am using hand-dyed birthday candle holders and cable ties in my 'Flower' series of jewellery.
I provide courses in spinning, dyeing, knitting and crochet and do fibre and yarn-based craft work for sale in galleries, exhibitions and via my website.
I also sell silks for spinners, dyes for craft workers and write books about textile crafts. I make hand woven scarves, knitted wire jewellery and hand dyed items for sale.
I am teaching at the Association of Weavers Spinners & Dyers summer school in Edinburgh in August 2011, and often do workshops for guilds in Scotland.
I have the certificate of Achievement in Hand spinning and many years experience of teaching.
I specialise in Carrickmacross lace and embroidery and will demonstrate or teach either.
Jen makes jewellery in silver and gold, inspired by landscapes around Scotland. She enjoys making pieces using a clients favourite landscapes and is most happy in her workshop.
