About The Artist
Julie Colquitt lives in St Andrews, Scotland. She is a textile artist working with wool, rusty metal, organic Ahimsa silk, organic cottons, nettle yarn, soya bean yarn and fine Indian silks. She also has a multinational ethical yarn company where she works directly with women in India producing yarns out of silk waste left over from sari manufacturing. With her travels to India she also supports their local schools and funding. On occasion she can be found making yarn alongside them working with their traditional tools! Hands!
Julie likes to challenge the traditional space adding a creative and contemporary presence.
