BLESSED UNREST

Blessed Unrest, an Edinburgh based design brand, launched it’s first textile collection in 2016 at Handmade Edinburgh, The Hub at The Castle. 

I’m completely motivated by nature, its quiet resilience in the urban environment, in particular strong shadows and silhouettes against bright skies or in contrast with built and man made surfaces. My practice is very process driven which means I develop my textile designs using placement printing which is spontaneous and intuitive instead of pre planned. 

The planning and preparation of imagery is a huge consideration, testing and sampling my colours is too but the print surface, the positive/negative space and the direction/rhythm of the pattern evolve on the table with each new screen printed layer and colour. It’s a completely immersive process. Sometimes the textile piece develops first and the product is a secondary consideration. 

On other occasions I have a specific product shape on the print table and the surface pattern element is influenced by it’s use and function. I construct and manufacture all my products by hand and each range has visual impact and functionality as their core ingredient. 

My delicate scarf fabrics are digitally printed in Glasgow and hand finished by Kalopsia in Dunfermline.
