MAKER OF THE MONTH
So happy to be asked to return to this awesome shop. Fiona and James have supported me before I even began making so its always a pleasure to show my new stock with them.
When you’re visiting the Edinburgh Festival pop down to Broughton Street, there are lots of fabulous places to visit and eat at and of course Concrete Wardrobe.

The Old Flour Mill
for two weeks the Pop Up Boutique is being hosted by Tea Green Events aka Jo my good friend. What an amazing selection of Scottish Design and Craft under one roof. There’s also a live studio space and a concept atelier.
Ive been working with Jo on a skill swap and have created some unique jewellery pieces available at the boutique, I have loved working with metal and combining it with bright colours inspired as ever by the East Neuk of Fife’s harbours.
there’s lots to see so do try and pop along if you can
March was a really lovely month with my amazing children coming home for a week together. Stevie from Brisbane and Rachel and Louise from London. It went too quickly and left Jim and I feeling a little lost after they left but the studio as ever holds great healing powers and I have spent some lovely time screen printing and making lampshades, I been back teaching at DJCAD and started the practical part of a research project Im involved in. Below are some of the screen prints I’ve been making and are available my shop.
