Fife Craft Makers at Collect 2024

This weekend, three Fife-based makers selected by Craft Scotland will be showcasing their work at Collect in London, along with nine other talented artists. Held in Somerset House from Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd March 2024, Collect is the craft sector’s premier showcase, bringing together galleries, artists and collectors. Craft Scotland will have its own dedicated gallery space making Scottish contemporary craft a real focal point of Collect 2024; showcasing covetable artworks in ceramics, printed textiles, jewellery, wood and homewares. 

We are especially proud that Fife Contemporary’s Stefanie Cheong was selected as one of the final 12 makers!

The Makers

  • Susie Redman, a weaver based in Fife whose unique approach blends traditional basketry with loom-woven linen and paper yarn, creating sculptural pieces that challenge preconceptions. For Collect 2024 she is creating a new collection of vessels, handwoven with Japanese paper yarn and linen with homegrown willow rods woven into the cloth to give the vessels structure and an elegant form.

  • Jo Walker, a ceramic artist who seamlessly melds traditional techniques with modernist architectural influences. Their work, primarily created on the potter’s wheel, features tactile clay manipulation and a signature sgraffito method, yielding striking visual contrasts and intricate detailing. For Collect, Jo will produce a series of five ceramic columnar sculptures which will be highly patterned and punctuated by bands of coloured glossy glaze. Jo’s Instagram

  • Stefanie Cheong, a designer-maker who specialises in making work from ethical metals and found Scottish rock. Her creative practice has evolved over 10 years; guided by ethical questions and sustainable concerns. For Collect, Stefanie will be making a new collection of rocks that create a timeline of stone evolution through human manipulation. The rocks will be cut into circles for a set of interchangeable rings and brooches, a piece for contemplation but aesthetically beautiful. Stefanie’s Instagram

In addition to the makers highlighted above Craft Scotland will showcase work by tapestry artist Jo McDonald, Richard Goldsworthy working in wood and pewter, silversmith and enameller Emma Louise Wilson, jewellery designers Stefanie Cheong, Marianne Anderson, Iona Turner, Heather McDermott, Andrew Lamb and Liu Qiwei.
