Compass Rose Studio sketch book and paints with new Celtic knotwork designs

Compass Rose Studio was created by Ruth McEvilly in and is situated in a rural idyll with stunning views over the Aberdeenshire countryside.

Scottish tweeds designed by Ruth during her years working as a textile designer are combined with Celtic knotwork printed linen and embellished with machine embroidery, to create a unique range of distinctive cushions, accessories and artwork for the home.

With a passion for woven fabric and the geometry of Celtic knot work the studio is working on different ways to link the two and produce contemporary pieces

Ged McEvilly who had been making driftwood products for some years added his workshop space in 2018 from which he now creates one off pieces using recycled wood adding copper, stamps, maps and old admiralty charts.
He is drawn to nautical themes after his years, spent in the Royal Navy and uses these motifs in some of the work he makes.
