Textiles Designer/Maker, Screen Printing Artist
Katie Charleson is a screen printed homewares designer committed to creating sumptuous, unique textiles. Always leading the design process with colour, her prints create cushions, quilts and interior objects that are modern, bright and desirable.
Katie works exclusively with natural fibres from ethical sources and uses organic fabrics where possible. Many works embrace upcycling and make use of remnants, off cuts and archival fabrics.
She only uses water based inks in her production, and is consciously introducing natural dyes while educating herself on the most environmentally positive way to continue creating textile work.
All of Katie’s products and commissions are hand dyed, hand printed and hand stitched in her Edinburgh Studio. If product manufacture does need to be outsourced, then it is always kept local.
Katie has spent the start of 2021 setting up a textile print space in Edinburgh Open Workshop alongside fellow printer Laura Richmond, where they will begin offering print and textile craft workshops in the summer.
