Bruce and I took a few hours off today, and spent the morning drinking tea and eating scones with our friend Sarah.
Sarah has recently moved to Edinburgh from Shetland, and it was the first time I’ve had a chance to see her new studio.
I love to see different kinds of spaces dedicated to making — they always carry the distinctive stamp of the people who make in them. This space is very Sarah.
The studio is full of haberdashery — gorgeous trims and findings. . .
. . .Vintage lace meets digitally printed crepe de chine . . .
. . . so many lovely pieces.
Sarah’s silk-jersey accessories feel more like jewellery than scarves to me. Precious and liminal, their wave-inspired and deliciously fluid fabric seems to emerge from a space somewhere between land and water. I couldn’t leave without one.
What Sarah does with fabric is totally amazing (just look at this beautiful gown she recently designed). I fear her studio may be a place of dangerous temptation . . . but it is lovely to have her nearby.
How inspiring, to visit a new studio, and lovely ‘necklace’ you’re wearing !
Yep talented and making best use of it. The black handled scissors made me think of all the things mum made I my childhood, and go and get my beloved black handled pinking shears. I’ve been finding your blog with back months so thought provoking, moving and inspiring Kate, thank you for your subtle and courageous words, and wonderful pictures.
Oh, what a lovely gown on a happy bride!
I love to see other peoples work space, it always inspires a few changes in mine. :-)
Very beautiful studio and work! And I’m intrigued by your new header photo… lovely old shell!
That wedding dress is to die for! and that scarf looks a treat. I love the look of her workroom, so talented
Beautiful works of art – especially enjoyed the link to the gorgeous wedding dress. But what is the new knitting photo at the top of your blog – something new?
Thanks for the introduction to this amazing artist. That was a wee holiday in itself…so beautiful, different, enjoyable.
I follow her blog she is amazing with her art.
You are blessed to be around so many talented and sharing people.
Too many lovely pieces! I don’t know how you managed to choose.
