This weekend I went along to Parade Mews Studios in Tulse Hill with my lovely friends http://zenaparker.tumblr.com/ and http://meekomokotextilework.tumblr.com/ to try out a spot of glass making! We found out it’s a lot harder than it looks but we made some pretty glass baubles!

Paperchase and LCC Collaboration
This was the second time Paperchase and BA Surface Design students have collaborated on a winning project; this time the company asked us to consider designs for Christmas wrap. The 5 winning designs are currently being sold in Paperchase stores, with one design also selected as a charity Christmas card.
The 5 winning wraps were designed by:
Paige Cartledge: a design combining Christmas greetings from different cultures. Abigail Charge-Thornton: an illustrative wrap looking at Christmas decorations. Jessica Thaytes: inspired by Christmas markets and the excitement of Christmas. Vienna Huffman: a beautiful tree based design, also considering recyclable products. Sally Whitworth: a wintry design, with illustrations of a penguin Christmas party.
The wrapping paper designed by Abi also featured in TimeOut Magazine!
A further 3 designs, created by Kat Sagan, Kathryn Robinson and Laura Aldous, were selected by the Surface Design tutors to be printed in-house.
All of the designs will be available to buy at the Christmas Stall at LCC 26th-29th November 10 am - 6 pm.
This is just so fantastic :)
Nothing like a bit of vintage Feist to make everything ok again :)
Good things have been a-happening today with my lovely friends holly http://meekomokotextilework.tumblr.com/ and zena http://zenaparker.tumblr.com/
Started experimenting with sculpey polymer clay and have made a series of little red headed characters based on a few of my drawings. The next step will to be make a puppet!
My latest project - an epic embroidery piece inspired by the glasswork on the facade of the Harpa opera house which I saw on a recent visit to Reykjavik, Iceland. It’s taking aaaaaages but should hopefully be worth all the hard work when it’s finally done!
