Bright sparkly colour

…and a little Christmas luxury.

I’ve been interested in Shibori for a long time and¬†would love to one day hand weave a piece that¬†gets transformed using this ancient pleating, binding and dyeing method.

In the meantime, I sourced some fine, plain silk scarves and started practising. Definitely need to master a more methodical pleating technique, but I think there is potential for further fun/experimenting.

I really love the intensity of colour on the lightweight, shimmery silk – my favourite is the green/jade one¬†which is also a large circular infinity scarf. These are ‘one-of-a-kind’, have just been delivered to The little Beehive Co-op range and between $55-$70 each.

Twill textiles will be having a little Christmas break next week so I wish you lots of happiness for a joyous and peaceful holiday. xxx

Yarn Fun

Having some fun with gorgeous colours and fibres.

New summer-time tassel garlands made this week. (2.5meters long $37.50  Рcustom 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.

 

 

A big, BIG, thank you….

…to everyone at this year’s Great Christmas Market – you’re lovely!

Still catching our breath, but Rosie and I had such a good time all day and we met so many gorgeous people. Thank you for stopping by. Here is our little stand just before we opened.

The market atmosphere was amazing. Apart from all the hand-made goodness available and the talented makers/artists/designers and organisers: there was music, food, fun, beautiful surroundings and Nelson sunshine all day.
