Rhona Jack is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Dundee, with experience of leading workshops in-person and online. Her artistic practice is formed by a combination of sculpture and fibre art, often blurring the lines between art, craft and design. The hand of the artist is always present throughout her work, and the tactility of materials is of high importance. Every inch of the work has been handled, and the hours spent making are recorded in every stitch, every knot, every joint, every interwoven strand. Her work is made primarily of reclaimed materials that long to be touched, and hold within them a history of touch.
After graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2017, Rhona was invited to show her work at the Royal Scottish Academy’s New Contemporaries exhibition, was awarded the Fleming Wyfold Bursary and the Glenfiddich Artist in Residence.
Rhona runs workshops and participatory projects with adults and children, teaching textile techniques and encouraging the reuse of scrap materials. She has also worked in collaboration with The Cooper Gallery, The Edinburgh Art Festival, North Edinburgh Arts, Whale Arts and DJCAD, providing textile art workshops. Rhona is currently a committee member at GENERATORprojects.
