Today’s Auchterarder Adventure was in Auchterarder to meet Proggy and Tweed, another of the artists on the Plum Route of the Perthshire Open Studios event.
Meet Kim MacGillivray of Proggy and Tweed Designs. Based in Auchterarder, Kim works in textiles, mainly wool, combining handmade felt with knitted and stitched textiles to make wearables and home accessories. Influenced by the natural world, she creates striking, colourful pieces.
At this Open Studios event Kim is sharing her “Mermaids Tale” collection which illustrates a traditional story “The Mermaid and the Fisherman”. As you can see from the photographs there are some stunning pieces in the collection.
Ranging from clothing to jewellery and homewares, using felts, silks and tweed there is a wealth of choice to see at Proggy and Tweed.
