Virtual studio visit with Vevar co-founder Christopher McEvoy-Barton

This month, our host Lisa Kennedy takes us (virtually) to the East End of Glasgow to have a peek inside of Vevar, a woven textile studio and modern micro mill developed by award-winning designers, Christopher McEvoy and Chantal Allen.

Vevar is a small batch manufacturer and can produce a range of fabrics on its 1940’s dobcross loom, as well as smaller hand-woven lengths on its range of antique and traditional sample looms.

With over 20 years of experience in design and manufacture between them, Christopher and Chantal are equipped to tackle any project with expertise- creating textile solutions across Art, Design and Architecture. Together the team offer design and consultancy services, production and manufacturing and industry development support alongside their own in-house products.

During this studio visit you’ll learn about working in partnership, running a business alongside your own professional practice and what it’s like to so passionate for your craft that you become a champion for the local industry.
