I’ve been looking for some time for a wonderful space to run my workshops in. Something large, light filled, and indoors. Something centrally located near public transport in a vibrant inner city suburb. It is with great pleasure that I share with you that I have found all of this and more in the new Cecilia Fox […]
A few months ago I was invited to take part in a new curated store concept, Domestic Frontier. The concept behind the store is that everything is related to the home, which is really lovely, and has made me look at new product ideas that I could do, or do the new products that I just […]
Indigo is the natural dye I have worked with most, and challenges me more than any other. You could spend your life working with it, and still learn something new every day. Indigo dyed textiles always seems to be alive. It’s a colour that changes with the light, and on sunny days will be bright […]
Fustic and Indigo green is The Best. This shade of green makes me slap my face a la Macaulay Caulkin and rather than scream, I kind of just go “eughaaargh” and make other nonsense noises because words just cannot explain how good it is.

I have always found the colour red to be immensely appealing. It’s bright, yet dark, it glows, but can be sombre. It’s the colour of love, blood, danger, the desert and fire engines. It means different things and triggers different emotional responses depending on the context in which it is used.

Wow. Just WOW! I am so thrilled to have been interviewed for new online magazine Winkelen for their second issue, out today. I’ve never really seen an online magazine before (does that make me old? un-tech saavy?) but when Winkelen got in touch I was really blown away with how great it looked, the articles […]
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the time it takes for a product to be created from its raw state, whatever that may be.
I’ve been a very quiet blogger so far this year. I find it hard to blog consistently because I always have so much to do, and not all of it is very interesting! I post much more on instagram, a picture speaks a thousands words, yada yada…
