Catherine Jackson Textile Artist

Hello I m Catherine a busy mummy to my three beautiful children. I have always sewn and embroidered from a young age, many of my skills have been passed down from my granny and my mum. After having my children and becoming a full time mum, I found that I needed something to do to relax, unwind and escape the everyday hustle and bustle of family life. I took up my knitting needles (not forgetting to blow the cobwebs off!) and started knitting. My creating then started to take off and I settled into my own unique way of designing and creating.

 

I love all things textile and the more natural and locally sourced the better. I knit, crochet, weave, sew, embroider and needle felt. My two main areas of design are my embroidery art and my needle felted art. I particularily enjoy upcycling where I can, often sourcing fabrics and necklaces from charity shops to incorporate them in my art. The raw wool I use in my needle felted art comes mainly from a rare breed Ryeland sheep that I aquired locally. I wash, dye and comb it myself and then use it to paint pictures with.

 

I run workshops from Northallerton, Richmond and Darlington and always welcome new location suggestions. I take commissions and private bookings for small groups (6-10) in your own home. I am a member of the Artists Network and have the appropriate Public Liability Insurance. I am also a member of Made by Mummy Markets  where my work can be viewed and purchased at well organised art and crafts fairs. I have just recently exhibited my work in the Dales Inspiration exhibition in Masham where my work proved very popular.
