Kate Bowles

Kate is one of our local makers to the gallery and lives and works in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. She uses the most beautiful recycled leathers, fabrics and papers to create the most exquisite notebooks and journals. In Kate’s words these then continue their own creative journey when the recipient starts filling the notebook with beautiful images and notes.  Kate’s traditional craftmenship of book binding  truly amazes me, she creates beautiful stitched patterns using vintage threads lace and tape measures allowing each spine of the book to be truly unique.

We think these make the perfect gift and her tiny ones would be the perfect stocking filler this Christmas.
