A GALASHIELS textile designer has been chosen to showcase her work at a national event.

Taking place during the Edinburgh festival, the seventh annual Craft Scotland Summer Show will bring together some of the country's most talented crafters.

In August, the second floor of White Stuff in George St, Edinburgh, will be transformed into a haven for craft and design lovers.

Visitors are expected to descend in their thousands upon the exhibition, which for the month of August will be home to an array of exquisite jewellery, contemporary ceramics, textiles and furniture.

And local craftswoman Flora Collingwood Norris, whose items of luxury knitwear are inspired by the Inner Hebridean islands where she spent her childhood holidays, will be at the centre of the show.

Based in the Borders, she creates some pieces by hand-framing them individually in her studio, and others in small batches at a local mill.

She uses lambswool or silk in her designs, sourced in Scotland where possible.

Working with the principles of slow fashion, Flora aims to bring out the best in traditional skills and natural fibres to create cherished garments and accessories.

The Craft Scotland Summer Show will offer a series of maker led workshops, where participants will be able to try their hand at hand weaving, willow weaving and paper folding.

New for 2019, young maker workshops are being offered for 12 to 16 year olds.

Young crafters will be offered the chance to learn the art of bookbinding, or attend a heat transfer printing workshop.

Adult workshops will cost £40, and young makers workshops will cost £15.

Speaking ahead of this year's show, Craft Scotland's Director Irene Kernan said: "Many of these makers start their journey with our summer shows and use this platform to develop great craft careers.

"In this regard it's particularly encouraging to see so many makers who will show their work with us for the first time."

The show will run from August 2-25.
