Madeleine Jude, New Ashgate Gallery Craft Prize at the Festival of Crafts, Jane Crisp and Judith Needham

Madeleine Jude, New Ashgate Gallery Craft Prize at the Festival of Crafts, Jane Crisp and Judith Needham

Madeleine Jude is a textile designer and handweaver known for her beautifully soft lambswool throws, cushions and home textiles, woven using complex block weave techniques.

Her designs are influenced by Scandinavian weaving traditions and her colour aesthetic has much in common with the beautiful and naturalistic colour palette of early 20th century Swedish women rug weavers such as Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom and Ingegerd Silow. Each of her designs is a celebration of her great love of colour and pattern and an exploration of new weave structures and design elements. Every piece is meticulously handwoven, hand fringed or blanket stitched and hand finished by Madeleine in her Surrey studio, and as a result every piece is unique.

The exhibition also includes best-selling, bespoke trugs by Jane Crisp's and fabulous baskets for cats by Judith Needham.

Jane Crisp

Jane Crisp makes objects for life that say something and amplify traditional techniques in a contemporary way. Inspiration sparks from the flora and fauna and evolutionary crafts of my rural surroundings at home, in Hale Fen, Cambridgeshire.

Her products consist of small batches of steam-bent Trugs, joined and constructed using traditional boat-builder's techniques and fixings. They are made to use and love but have strong sculptural qualities that create movement within a ridged structure. If you catch these vessels in the wind they will rock like boats.
