Jewel colour weaving coming off the loom today. I’m working on some new products with a friend Rosemary Horn. She will add some embroidery stitch magic to them and they will become little wall art pieces and brooches.
Rosie and I will be selling these amongst other lovely goodies at the Great Christmas Market on the 26th November.
So excited to reveal our custom print wall murals. Designed by us studio buddies, Twill Textile Design and Nester. Available exclusively at The Inside.
Our first mini range is called ‘Fly Home’ which features three designs and various colour stories – each with a distinctly New Zealand flavour and hand-made look.
‘Fantail Flight’ – Mustard/Grey
‘Dawn Chorus’ – Blue
‘Kakariki’ – Smokey Blue
We have more designs in the works too, including this little watercolour beauty!
Check them out, alongside all the other wonderful wallpapers and murals, at www.theinside.co.nz
…..I’ve been working on everything all at once. Some chunky knits for the Little Beehive Co-op shop, some warming hand weaving, and an exciting design collaboration with my studio buddy Nester prints .Here is a little sneak-peep – still a way to go yet.
Sometimes I take on a big project and really challenge myself.
This commission has me slowly but surely weaving four wall panels – juggling many colours, shapes and techniques.
Still learning lots and loving it.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these wall hangings for a long time. I simply tied on some natural textured yarns onto a piece of driftwood (using larkspur knots); attached some delicate beach finds; did a bit of hand weaving over and under groups of threads here and there; and finally, added a touch of silvery sparkle.
Think I’ll call it a ‘dreamweaver’ – maybe it looks a bit 1970’s, but spending an hour quietly making something with natural elements has made me really happy 🙂
Something soft and pretty for a new baby girl.
Having some fun with gorgeous colours and fibres.
New summer-time tassel garlands made this week. (2.5meters long $37.50 – custom lengths and colours available at $15 per meter )
I also made some ‘Twine’ on my old ashford spinning wheel. It’s great for gift wrapping and craft projects. ($4 for each 5m length)
Available at The Little Beehive Co-op, Nelson or message me if you would like some direct.
