Kate Dowty - textile artist

Welcome to my website where you will find some brief information about my interests, my background and my current work.

I am a textile artist working with fabric and thread to create quilted wallhangings. Some pieces are very simple, others are heavily embellished; some are inspired by the world around me, while for others the cloth itself provides inspiration. All are colourful. I particularly enjoy the textural effects that result from adding stitch to cloth. I enjoy experimenting with dyeing and painting fabric which is then incorporated into my work.

Now based in West Dorset in the UK, more and more of my work is inspired by the nearby sea and the beautiful local landscape.

Forthcoming Events

I will be presenting solo exhibitions as part of the following events in 2016:

05 - 08 May
International Quiltfestival, Kiischpelt, Luxembourg

28 May - 12 June
Dorset Arts Weeks

More details of both events will be available nearer the time.
