Jess Hay is a Glasgow based creative specialising in craftwork, primarily rug tufting with wool. This technique is labour intesive and combines the traditional method of rug-making with new technologies. Hay uses bright colours and repetitive motifs to make work, evoking nostalgia in the veiwers. There is a sense of pleasure when looking at the work as well as excitement for the textures and colours. 

After graduating from Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art in 2020, Hay is now based in Southside and commutes to her studio in the East End everyday.
