Select Festival and Trail 2017: Interview Shorts

A series of interviews shorts filmed by Katie Jane Watson with artists and makers appearing at this years Select Festival and Trail:


Cleo Mussi creates inspiring and extraordinary work using discarded china. In this artist interview for SIT, Cleo talks about her interests in environmental issues and new work involving weeds.

Meet Cleo at Frogmarsh Mill during the Select Trail where you can buy and commission her work. The Trail is open May 6/7 & 13/14 2017 - find out more on the SIT select website here


In this latest film on Makers and Making commissioned by SITselect for the Select Festival 2017,  Valerie Michael and Neil MacGregor talk about their work.

MacGregor & Michael create beautiful and lovingly crafted leather goods from their studio in Tetbury, Gloucestershire. Meet Val and Neil in their Tetbury studio (studio 33) in May 2017 during the Select Trail where you can buy and commission their work.


Jilly Edwards is a contemporary tapestry weaver. She always travels with sketchbooks, journals and reading books so she can record moments and memories, recording these responses in quick gestural marks, whether of colour, shapes, textures or words. So when she returns to the studio she has an ‘aide memoire’ to help embellish her ideas.

SIT select filmed Jilly in her new home and studio in Bristol.
