Jo Gallant, Textile Artist


studio textiles

From my studio in SW Scotland I make cushions, scarves and one-off pieces out of cloth ranging from cotton velvet to fine translucent silks: hand-dyed, pieced and machine-embroidered.
Some designs are abstract, consisting of blocks of shaded colour, others feature landscapes or quirky birds and animals.



From my studio near New Galloway, on the edge of Galloway Forest Park, I will be running a one-day workshop teaching some of the machine embroidery techniques which I use myself to create texture. This is a chance to experiment and learn how to use a wide range of techniques: free-motion quilting, manipulation of fabrics, different machine stitching techniques and water-soluble stabiliser.
