Kate Whitehead Textiles

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.
