Katrina is an artist and facilitator based in Stoke-on-Trent, working with plant and mineral colour. She mostly works collaboratively, acting as a bridge between the plant world, people and communities; reigniting curiosity and care for the natural world - of which we are a part.
Her work is anchored in the knowledge that everything is connected. She believes in the power of intimacy, looking to enable people to reconnect with the rhythms and rituals of nature through colour, materials and process. Sharing perspectives and facilitating space for people to play is central to her work.
She is currently working with the Portland Inn Project, Spode Rose Garden and local schools delivering workshops and participatory programs, and has recently been commissioned by the Materials Science Research Centre (RCA). She runs and shares a textile design and making studio with her sister, Wilde Studio.
Katrina’s work intersects across public and community engagement, education, research, fashion, materials, storytelling and performance.
