well, well, well. february is over already. time is flying by and it'll soon be spring hoorah! the daffodils and crocuses re already blooming and the evenings are getting lighter. love this time of year! so what did i get up in the design side of my life...
i was contacted by the lovely Ali Benyon to provide some 'top tips' for new designers. i gave advice alongside the likes of Lotta Jansdotter, Rachael Taylor, Elizabeth Olwen, Bethan Janine and Jessica Hayman (more on her later!). you can see the full blog post here. so many useful hints and tips from everyone...huge thanks to Ali for pulling it all together!
i got head down for some more studying with some workshops available in The Textile Design Lab from Pattern Observer. still have one more to go though! i'll save it for march!
and then i finalised the packaging designs which i think add a little bit of pazazz to these handmade items... these will be available in my new online shop coming soon!
and whilst at the museum i got to have a little look around their latest exhibition - 'artist textiles - picasso to warhol'. i'll share some pictures in next weeks blog post, but i can highly recommend a visit - it's on until 17th may so you've got plenty of time!
i was invited to take part as one of 30 designer-makers in Wimbledon Village Design Fair in May. i will be trading alongside sculptors, potters, painters, jewellery designers...a full list of traders can be found here.
i applied to We Make London and was accepted to sell my products in their Camden pop-up shop! i start March 17th in time for Mother's Day...i'll be in the shop this day so pop along and say hi! i took a trip to the store this week as they were holding a social event for all the designers to meet each other. was lovely to meet such a mixture of creatives, some of which are already selling the shop and some are looking to join the team.
goodbye february...and hello to march!
