Smitten Design Workshops

Katie has been working with fabric in one way or another all her life. From clothes to interiors to conceptual art, she has always been fascinated by the power of fabric to transform places, spaces and people. Katie works in her studio in West Auckland, where she is inspired by the wild mash-up of urban industrial spaces and the forest clad Waitakere ranges. She loves synthesising these disparate influences into printable motifs.She relishes in the uniqueness of hand printing and exploring its numerous possibilities. She graduated with an M.A in Textile Art from Goldsmiths University of London, in 1995, and prior to this, she studied textiles at Otago Polytechnic in Dunedin. She likes to keep her work simple, spontaneous and contemporary. She loves sharing her knowledge and passion for textiles and has run numerous print workshops for adult and children. www.smittendesign.co.nz
