Born 1973, Edinburgh, lives and works in Edinburgh.
Beca Lipscombe is a printmaker and textile designer. Since studying at Central St Martins, Lipscombe has worked in London and Paris freelancing for companies such as Liberty, Chloe, Stella McCartney and Anne Sophie Back. Up until 2011 she taught on the Master of Fashion and Textiles at GSA stepping down from this post to concentrate on her own work and the work of her company Atelier EB which she runs in partnership with artist Lucy McKenzie.
Lipscombe’s varied practice has included the production of commissioned display and interiors for public and private spaces, textiles, furniture, publishing and more recently a collection of women’s wear produced in collaboration with Atelier EB and Panel presented as The Inventors of Tradition.
Her work is centred around an interest in craft traditions in Scotland and a desire to utilise the quality and talent within craft industries.  A new women’s wear collection will be launched by Atelier EB in 2013.
