Opening Times


About the Artist

Katherine originally trained as a woven textile designer and now works both as a weaver and artist. Her paintings and new colourful fine silk and cashmere scarves are inspired by the surrounding local landscapes, and are filled with colour, light and texture.

Katherine studied woven textile design at The Royal College of Art in London and since then her varied creative career has included working freelance for fashion designers, and also as a fine artist. Whether painting or weaving her work is filled with colour, light and texture, and is inspired by the local landscapes around her home in rural Stirlingshire, including the outlook of hills from her own garden.

Combining skills learnt in both practices, she has been developing a collection of fine silk and cashmere scarves with the help of a grant from Creative Scotland, for small scale production at a mill in The Scottish Borders. Some of these will be on display alongside her artwork and demonstrations of her computerised handloom.


Traveling from Stirling take the A811 west then the B822 through Kippen and over the hill to Fintry. Turn left at Fintry cross. Greenvale Cottage is nearly 1 mile along the B822 heading east out of Fintry, on the left just beyond the church.
