About

Kate Whitehead is a textile artist specialising in weave & embroidery. Kate’s
work is a protest against the way textiles are consumed in western society.  Tired of a world in which clothes are produced and thrown away without thought to the consequences; where the fashion industry and media impose identities on us. Kate’s rebellion is to go back to slower processes, embrace tradition, salvage the discarded, fix the broken.
