paper shoes

I love these, they are just so intricately made.
I know the notion of using recycling paper to create things isn't new but I do still find it really interesting everytime. The old stories of its previous use, the words in another context. The small scale just adds to the delicacy.
You can buy them from her website as little pieces in a box or in a white frame for the wall which I think would look really lovely.

how things change...

I'm now a member of the Wallace Sewell team!! Couldn't be happier :D

Wallace Sewell!

Well thats me almost four months into my work placement with Wallace Sewell in London and I'm really loving it. The colours and textures that the designers Emma and Harriet create in their woven scarves and throws are so inspiring to me.
If you haven't seen their work before check it out at or find us at week 2 of the Craft Council's 'Origin' show in Sommerset House.

I did a wee bit of weaving yesterday to try out new colourways and can't wait to find out more and become more involved in their design process throughout the rest of my placement.

New Designers

Well that's me just finished exhibiting at New Designers. I had a really positive response from those who saw my work and really enjoyed talking to people about it. Many business cards were picked up so I'm hoping something may come from exhibiting? I can't wait to carry on designing so any commissions will be greatly received... as are any job offers or interviews!! Think I may be chancing my luck there! But I did thouraghly enjoy the experience.

Thank you to everyone who admired my drawings, they are now for sale... I will post some pictures and prices soon.

The Show

The degree show so far has been great. Our fashion show at the VIP opening went done really well. One of my woven lengths was worn draped as a skirt so I thought I'd add a wee picture as I'm really pleased with the way it looked. Erin o'Conner came and was really lovely, she even bought a jacket that one of my classmates had designed, was very exciting!

Well with a week of the show to go I've already had interest in my work by way of a scarf commission and there have been requests to buy my woven belts - can't wait to see what London will bring when I exhibit at the New Designers show in July.
