Kate Wilson graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2021. For her final degree show piece Kate, who is originally from the village of Sauchen in Aberdeenshire, decided to pay homage to the dialect and those who speak it within her art. Her project ‘Wyvin Wyes’ incorporates crafts such as knitting, crochet, weaving and embroidery from amateur crafters who are from, or based in, Aberdeenshire.
She wove the pieces into a large cylindrical loom that emits a body of audio gathered from Doric speakers. This includes a series of poems from the well-known poet and advocate of the Doric language, Sheena Blackhall.
Kate created a stunning piece for the collective which recycled hundreds of old Imajica business cards into an installation.
Kate's degree show piece Wyvin Wyes was created in 2021.
Untitled was created in 2021 and dominates our studio in Aberdeen.
