Acme Atelier

Mixed Media

Acme Atelier is the studio of bespoke kiltmaker Andrea Chappell, who combines the heritage craft skills of kiltmaking and printmaking with those of contemporary design, exploring broader possibilities for pleating construction techniques, alongside original textile creation. Andreas bespoke kilts are hand-stitched in the traditional method using bespoke tailoring techniques, often combined with original artworks printed onto, or inside her kilts. Her sustainable ethos is fundamental to her practise, specifically using end-of-roll or discontinued textiles, vintage fabrics and deadstock cloth to create unique, contemporary kilts. This festival sees the launch of her IV36 initiative, promoting a local circular economy specifically to remake vintage wool skirts into contemporary kilts, re-design woollen knitwear and re-purpose fabric remnants, committing 20% of profits towards training for the next generation..
