Our Team: Introducing Becca Macdonald
Becca Macdonald assists with the daily operations of the studio.
Becca is a designer maker who has recently moved back to Saltaire after living in London. Becca’s background is in textile design: she specialised in knit at Chelsea College of Arts. While in London Becca worked in a range of design, interior and craft studios assisting and leading teams. She helped deliver projects that included furniture and surface design, immersive public experiences and architectonic textiles. She also assisted with the day-to-day operations of a pottery studio and has taught handbuilding workshops.
Becca’s personal practice currently involves making jewellery that documents human traces and transience. She uses metal clay to produce fine silver jewellery. Her pieces record fluidity, movement, gesture, space and where hard meets soft.
Becca’s interest in form, texture and the evidence of presence has driven experimentation with a range of materials and processes – textiles, porcelain, jesmonite, silver clay, resin.
Becca’s material thirst and investigative attitude, combined with industry, educational and customer facing experience, really excites us. Becca is usually found keeping a keen eye on work flow through the studio and liaising with members and studio users.
