Katie set up her business in 1991 after graduating from Camberwell Art School with a degree in textile design.
She started out from an old railway arch near Brixton before moving to the more spacious Clockwork Studios in Camberwell. Originally home to Fred Karno’s Fun Factory in the early 1900’s, featuring Stan Laurel and Charlie Chaplin, this building has since been transformed into a honeycomb of studio spaces for the use of Artists and Designer Makers.
Katie's work is impeccable and she continues to widen her range of felted accessories and special cushions and throws. Katie has a wonderful eye for color and textile hand. We are proud to have her here at Freehand.
