SPIRIT OF COLLAGE

Inspired by the topsy turvy world of cubist cutouts and abstraction I've created a new collection collaging the crafts and celebrating the hand made. Combining yarns,fabrics and shapes, playing with running stitches, natural dyes and magically transforming found fabrics.

We spent a wonderous couple of days photographing our new samples ( some available now) on Seans Farm Panaroma and Mickeys Glenmore House.  From the hen house to the dairy we settled in to the blissful life on the farm spoilt by Seans yummy gnocchi and Mickeys sublime soups. And a squillion thanks to Victoria for the loan of your spotty  props.
