About Hayley Mccrirrick:
Hayley's final year project, ‘’CLAY’’ celebrates the return of honest hand-craftsmanship and artisan values in a collection of printed linen wall hangings and paper art prints for the home.
The weathered Scottish landscape inspires much of Haley's work. Combining subtle mark-making with earthly colours translates a sense of calm with understated depth within her work. Using natural materials, traditional techniques and simplistic form the basis of Hayley's practice.
Alongside completing an honours degree, Hayley is currently building her own textile/lifestyle brand Sable&Soul where she has already secured a partnership with online retailer 'Not on The High-street'.
Favourite textile technique: Working with reactive dyes to build layers and ink-like compositions. Combining this with working through blank screens allows unique pieces to be achieved every time.
Inspirational Designers: Julie Patterson based in Australia inspires me through her intuitive approach to colour. The work of Japanese artist Goto Hidehiko who creates beautiful, minimal compostions.
Dream job: My dream job is to continue building my own brand that offers an alternative answer to mass produced textiles with the aim of producing timeless, ethical wares.
