Hello, I’m Kate Durie, a print designer based in Northumberland. I specialise in hand screen printed textiles, a process I fell in love with while studying Printed Textiles at Leeds Arts University. My practice is rooted in my passion for hand crafted processes and the belief that handmade products informed through a designer’s experiences and creative processes increase their quality and longevity.
My prints evolve from a process of collaging compositions of mark making, mono printed textures and stencil cut forms. Mainly inspired by the enduring allure of the natural world, my prints often have references to natural elements while focusing on the use of bold shape and colour.
My screen printed textiles are applied onto homeware products which introduce colour, pattern and nature into the home. My products are all created by hand in Northumberland using the highest quality natural fabrics.
