Cloth and Colour: A Unique Perspective

This August, the striking textile work of Dundee-based maker Judy Scott is on display at Concrete Wardrobe for the latest Maker of the Month exhibition.

Scott’s work is inspired by a passion for colour, textiles and the details of Scotland’s shores and harbours.  Using drawing and screen printing, she creates spontaneous and unique abstract designs which are printed onto ties, scarves, capes and interior accessories from her studio in Dundee.

“I am passionate about colour and I love cloth.  I specialise in taking a design from its initial inspiration to developing in my own style through to the final outcome onto cloth”.

Scott studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee, where she graduated with a first class honours degree in Textile Design in 2013.  Amongst her long list of achievements, she was announced as winner of the New Designer BCFA Scottish Leather Group Award in 2013 and in 2012 she was awarded 1st place in the UK final of The Society of Dyers and Colourists’ International Competition.  

Scott is currently working as Designer in Residence within the Textiles Department of Duncan of Jordanstone College, where she is developing a new range of home interior accessories which will feature amongst her Maker of the Month exhibition collection.

Of Scott’s exhibition at Concrete Wardrobe, Co-owner Fiona McIntosh said, “Judy Scott’s designs are uniquely striking and modern.  Her meticulous eye for colour and line create pieces which have a strong sense of identity and are beautifully crafted.  We expect her Maker of the Month exhibition to prove very popular with our customers”.

Judy Scott is on display at Concrete Wardrobe from 1st to 31st August 2014.
Concrete Wardrobe is open Monday to Saturday 11am to 7pm. (Sunday 12 - 5pm.)
Concrete Wardrobe 50a Broughton Street, Edinburgh EH1 3SA
