Kate Colin
Spring | 2019

With virtually no UK accredited courses existing in folding, fabric pleating or fan making, Kate Colin has spent five years teaching herself this endangered craft.

Kate’s QEST Scholarship will enable her, for the first time, to study in professional environments - including the Centro del Bel Libro Ascona, Switzerland; Kristina Wißling’s studio, Germany; Maison Sylvain Le Guen, Paris; and The Fan Museum and Ciment Pleating, UK - with some of the finest pleating specialists and fan makers in the world. Kate shares her skills by teaching and has led courses at the Barbican and the V&A Dundee. Her goal is to become one of the UK’s leading specialists in folding and fan making.
