Joanne B Kaar
I have worked as a self employed fibre artist for more than 10 years, since obtaining an MA at Manchester Metropolitan University. My studio on Dunnet Head overlooks the Pentland Firth and Dunnet Bay. I recently spent five exciting months in Taiwan as Artist in Residence at the Chaoyang University and as consultant to the Su-Ho Paper Museum Taipei, culminating in exhibitions at the Su-Ho and Tower 101 (the tallest building the world). This residency was part funded by the Scottish Arts Council. I am the author of the book ‘Papermaking and Bookbinding Coastal Inspirations’ which was published by GMC in 2003. From this year, I have sat on the board for CraftScotland.
