About Alice Kettle

Alice Kettle is Professor in Textile Arts in MIRIAD Manchester School of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University. She is an honorary member of the 62 Group of textile artists.

Alice is a contemporary textile artist who has established a unique area of practice by her use of a craft medium, consistently and on an unparalleled scale. Her stitched works, many the size of huge figurative tapestries, exploit the textures and effects made possible through the harnessing of a mechanical process to intuitive and creative ends.

Her work is represented in many public collections including the Crafts Council London, the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, and the Museo Internationale delle Arti Applicate Oggi, Turin, Italy. Commissions include the National Library of Australia, the Scottish High Court in Edinburgh, Gloucester and Winchester Cathedrals and the School of Music & Drama at Manchester University.

Alice has jointly authored ‘Machine Stitch Perspectives’ (A and C Black 2010) and the companion volume ‘Hand Stitch Perspectives’ (Bloomsbury 2013) with Jane McKeating.
