Catherine Lewis

ColourField is the business of artist and designer Catherine Lewis; an expert in natural dyes, inks and print techniques; she was born and grew up in South Wales, she trained in textiles at Chelsea College of Art, then completed a Masters in Fine Art at the University of Wales in Swansea.

She’s been refining and sharing her knowledge of textiles for over twenty years and is now focusing on making things less harmful, less wasteful, longer lasting and more local for her ColourField brand.

Catherine creates her one-off textiles by alchemical natural dye and print processes, using ancient shibori techniques and local natural dyes, transforming each textile into a wondrous physical memory of nature’s bounty. She works with other designers and artists to realise their dyeing wishes, as well as creating many varied custom pieces for private clients.
