Gillteacosies and Lyrebirdhandmade natural fibre vessels
Gillteacosies sprang out of the need to keep creating while waiting for the paint and glue to dry. Here you will find a selection of lovely yarn art created to keep your favourite tea warm for as long as it takes you to enjoy it. Each work is handcrafted and unique in its design. Each cosy includes the pot it is crafted to cuddle. Most cosies are now sold, but I do make one every now and then and enquiries are welcome for one that may suit you.
Lyrebird Handmade showcases my unique natural fibre vessels and are designed to be useful yet beautiful and are usually handcrafted while I am journeying. Linen, hemp, jute, wool and cotton are used to create pods, bowls, baskets, mats, satchels and dilly bags some with stunning recycled sari silk, feather trim or natural found items. Vessels large and small are available in the studio. The ones below are just an example of what you can find here.
Full day workshops are available for felted pods and bowls, circular mats and dilly bags. Please contact me for these details.
