Kate is a Surface Pattern Designer who has recently completed the BA(Hons) Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design Programme at Leeds College of Art. Her practice employs an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary design processes to translate detailed pattern illustrations for a variety of print contexts. After winning her undergraduate student bursary award with The Textile Society, Kate went on to create her degree collection ‘Crafted Intricacy’ that combines hand drawn illustration with digital pattern making, laser engraving and traditional woodblock printing. Patternbank loves the intricacy of detail in these beautifully designed woodblocks together with the clever use of laser technology to give this historical craft a modern twist.
