Knitseweave is a small craft studio comprising of three friends who love to create knitted, sewn and woven garments and home accessories. Our handmade designs are a colourful and eclectic blend of the traditional and the whimsical.
Our work is available to buy direct from the studio and orders are most welcome.
I am Audrey Wilson and I'm totally obsessed with knitting! I'm basically self-taught (once my granny got me cast on). My focus is on home accessories and knitted bags, my inspiration came from a visit to the amazing Museum of Bags & Purses in Amsterdam.
I love to use high quality yarns, particularly cotton & merino wool to create strong, colourful designs. I also enjoy upcycling pre-loved furniture which is available to buy.
I am Lorna Swinney and I'm on a quest to create the perfect blouse. Way back in the 80's I studied Clothing Studies at the Scottish College of Textiles. After that I worked for several years in the clothing industry, manufacturing for a "major high street brand". I gave it all up to raise my family then I reinvented myself as an English teacher. Still, I hankered after my sewing days. What was mightier; the pen or the needle?
Now I work part-time in both fields and my quest continues: blouses (small, medium & large) made from fine fabrics with care & love...
I am Kate Bruce and when I'm not working I create handwoven items on my rigid heddle loom; gauntlets, cowl necks scarves & throws. I was inspired by a holiday visit to the weaving communities of Donegal. Blairgowrie Master Weaver Ashleigh Slater showed me the ropes and I have never looked back.
Weaving has made me see the world with different eyes - the colours of nature, winter skies, stormy seas, a freshly caught mackerel..... the inspiration never ends!
Like to learn to knit? Or were you taught long ago and think you have forgotten how? Don't worry, its just like riding a bike.......Refresher & beginner courses available.
£40 per 3 x 2 hour sessions. Mondays 12 - 2pm and 6.30 - 8.30pm.
