Kathy Schicker


I am a visual artist who specialises in textile design and collaborative projects.

I have recently completed an MA in Design for Textile Futures at Central St Martins College, which focused on issues including; sustainability, new materials, new technologies and the delivery of multidiscipline arts projects. My major project, Woven Light, created woven textiles that change colour in sunlight and glow in the dark. This reversible change magically reveals patterns and images and is designed to be located within educational and medical environments.

My interest in designing for educational and medical environments steams from my experience working in community arts for a number of years; as a resident artist, workshop facilitator, project manager, designer and mentor for a number of community groups and organisations. I see this as being equal to my artistic career and often work on a range of projects and have extensive experience in designing, planning, delivering, exhibiting and evaluating projects.
