The sun came out. Yay. So I took some pictures on the beach of 5 notebooks that I have been making.
This cloudy notebook along with others will be with me at Pick Me Up, Somerset House, London 24/04/14 – 05/05/14. I screen printed the covers by hand and stitched the book together with some colourful British linen thread.
Another stab bound notebook for your words and pictures. These notebooks are made with recycled card and the paper is plain inside.
I couldn’t help listening to Malvina Reynolds’ song Little Boxes whilst drawing these houses. I got very inky fingers with this one…..tee hee
The last of my five notebooks that I will be making at Pick Me Up 2014, Somerset House. Feel free to join me if you are interested and have a go at binding a notebook. You can also print a personalised letterpress label for your notebook with SORT.
I have been making these little Creature Brooches. They are made by screen printing onto recycled fabric, then stitching and stuffing.
The naming of the little creatures is up to you….
They look good on anything, dresses, hats, scarves, bags, and pretty much anything you can stick a pin in.
It was really nice to see things that I have made in Somerset House’s Christmas Arcade.The Christmas Arcade is open until 5th Jan 20
Pop along for some festive cheer as you shop, or if you want to feel some ice under your feet
The Christmas Arcade is on until 5th Jan 2014 if you fancy stopping by. Thank you.
Made in Britain has a pop up shop at Somerset House this Christmas. My Creature Notebooks and Egg Cups have been selected to sell at this Christmas Arcade. Kicking off the event is a Meet the Makers evening on Tuesday 19th November. I will be at the event if you wish to pop by . . . . . ; )
Packing up boxes of my boxes of egg cups. A lot of cardboard – I love cardboard.
