Jackie Skilton - Textiles

No bookings required.

Attendees cannot be guaranteed a space or a seat. Standing should be expected.

These decorative tea cosies are designed by Jackie Skilton.

With a love of making things with her hands, Jackie started working with fibres and textiles from an early age, inspired by her mother who was a milliner. Later, as part of an Allied Arts Major at the University of S.A. Jackie designed and constructed period costumes for the stage.

Jackie has a fascination with nature. Her tea cosy designs reflect the vibrant colours of plants and creatures and the earthy textures found in the natural world, be it in the garden, the bush or the ocean.

Jackie enjoys experimenting with different fibre techniques. Her creative flare is displayed in the detailed decorations on her tea cosies which are both colourful, unique and functional.

After exhibiting her pieces at North Lodge Cottage, Adelaide Botanic Garden in 2018 and 2019 her tea cosies have caught the attention of buyers and have found homes both locally and overseas.
