Fibre, Bead & Textile Artist

Kate is a mixed media artist with special interest in fibre and feltmaking.   Passionate about the ancient world, and inspired by the beautiful coasts and moors of the Southwest of England, Kate's work is informed by the world around us and our impact on it.  

Kate owns and runs The Bead and Fibre Cellar, a craft supplies shop in Black Torrington, Devon.   She has had a number of beadwork patterns published and regularly teaches workshops in beading and fibre crafts as well as working in her onsite studio.
