Making From a Place of Joy

One of the things I love about hat-making is creating mini collections around one theme or idea. These might develop into a model I carry forward or they may stay as one-offs. In the last 6 months I’ve been working a number of these micro-collections and its been so exciting to reconnect with the joy of making.

I’ve given myself permission to experiment whilst adopting the discipline needed to complete unfinished projects that I have procrastinated over for far too long. 

My work has definitely turned a corner and I have lots of new hats that reflect the joy I have had making them. So expect to hear more about it over the coming weeks – I’ll be sharing images of new work on my Instagram and on my Facebook page so make sure you are following! I will be revealing lots of new work at our Open Studios event at Marketplace on the 6th July 10am – 4pm and you are all invited!

First Frost is coming!

So the leaves are falling and the evenings are definitely drawing in and although we haven’t had the first frost of Winter 2018 it is surely on the way! With that in mind I am launching my new toasty tweedy scarves on the 1st of November but visitors to Handmade at The Thumb will get a sneak peak on Tuesday 30th of October – find out more about this event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/304167306836574/.

The 10 day count down to launch starts tomorrow! And I’ll be revealing a little more about the collection in the lead up to the 1st of November!
