Working with Kate Davies

Hi, I'm Jane Hunter, an artist who works predominantly with wool. In particular, Harris Tweed. Thanks for stopping by. If you would like to know more about who I am click here.

As an Inspired by Islay Club Member, you will know I've been working on a secret project for Kate Davies over the past few months.

Kate tells me that the book is nearing completion and I'm sure you're as excited as I am to get your hands on the physical object.

Working with Kate has been an absolute delight. She's an insanely talented, very generous and inspiring woman. 

Recently, my partner Sam & I were lucky enough to spend the day walking along the West Highland Way with Kate, Tom and Bruce the Lab. Here we are having a pit stop at Glengoyne waterfall, just behind the whisky distillery.

Kate recently visited my studio & gallery in West Kilbride, Ayrshire during which Tom spent an hour doing a great impersonation of a paparazzo!

While in the gallery, Kate navigated her way through all of my work, both originals and prints. Below are a few of her favourite pieces.

Thank you very much for visiting my website. I hope you thoroughly enjoy the Inspired by Islay book and Kate's gorgeous new patterns. I am hoping to pick up the needles for the first time in years just to make myself the Oa hoody!!
