Aaron Sterritt Woodwork, Aviemore, crafts

Aaron Sterritt Woodwork

Lives and works in Aviemore, Scotland within the Cairngorms National Park. Aaron creates contemporary pieces that are inspired by the natural characteristics of the wood in which he works.

"I mill and split my own wind blown wood so my hand is in the process from tree to final piece. I take great satisfaction in turning these trees into useful, valuable timber to be crafted into furniture and sculpture. My work is created through persistent experimentation. I have built up a vocabulary of different techniques in which to shape, mark and colour the wood creating form and texture. Inspiration often comes directly through the working process. Ideas are stumbled upon when sawing the wood or splitting along the grain using handtools.

At the core of all my work is a relationship between man and the material I work with. I like to combine and highlight the differences between nature, human hand and machine."

Aaron welcomes commission based work of any size.

Dower House Tweed Collection, Newtonmore, crafts

Dower House Tweed Collection

How we got here.

Quite simply, I was taught to sew as a child. My mother was a seamstress. I could not go out and play without having done the chores which included sewing, and mending. So from an early age, with Mums tutoring, I made clothes, Christmas presents and all manner of things with buttons and fabrics.

Moving the clock on a few years, I came to live in Scotland and was introduced to Harris Tweed. I started making a few handbags for friends, then I was commissioned to make something else, and then something else, and so it went on. I now make 40+ products, from Harris Tweed. I personally go to the Isle of Harris and choose the colours and weaves that are used in the Dower House Tweed Collection.

What has emerged is my maternal love of all things Kiwi, so many of the products you see will have Kiwiana lining, which might be a Ponga forest; Pukekos, one of our native birds; Jandles or sheep or some other aspects of typical Kiwi life. For me, being a Kiwi, and married to a Scot it is the perfect match of 2 great countries, of heritage and culture, of using new kiwi prints with traditional tweeds and tartans - of where, some of my ancestors came from - warm, homely.

In 2011 we bought the Dower House and I set about to make curtains, cushions, lampshades and much more. There is a real warmth to the house and it fits so perfectly with the furniture from New Zealand timbers that came along for the journey - Harris Tweed compliments our house, our furniture, the rooms, the decor and the name began to stick!

We make practical, easy to use products that wear well and brighten your kitchen, dining room or add another dimension to your wardrobe. From the cafeteria cover that will give you a smile when you see the Buzzy Bees to the mobile pocket that is filled with sheep.

..you know you always said it is one place you would like to go, well now you have both countries in the one place..

Enjoy having a part of something special and different that is made by hand in Scotland.

Katie Jackson Designs, Newtonmore, crafts

Katie Jackson Designs

Katie works from home in the village of Newtonmore. She designs and makes bags and accessories from Harris tweed - aiming to combine contemporary style with the traditional quality of the cloth. She likes to mix colours and patterns in each item and hardly ever makes two items exactly the same.

When she is not fulfilling bag orders for shops and galleries in the Highlands, Katie loves to experiment with other textile crafts, such as felting. Recently she has also been exploring silk paper-making and creative weaving. Sometimes these other activities are inspiration for the bag-making - eg, incorporating a woven panel in a bag.

Katie also teaches textile crafts, mainly through adult workshops and has exhibited regularly with Creative Cairngorms and the SBSA (Iona Gallery, Kingussie).
