I am very excited to be heading back to uni - I will be spending a week at the Institute for Creative Leather Technologies at Northampton University in June.  Part funded by the Leathersellers' Company, the course will be a hands exploration in a tannery about how different types of leather are produced.  I am sure my chemistry degree will be very useful!

 

SUCCESS in new york!

Loot - display - Apr18.jpg
 

It has been a busy week since I returned to the studio from New York - making special orders.  LOOT was simply a phenomenal show, where visitors were curious, adventurous and enormous fun to meet.  

 

'NIGHT & DAY' FOR LOOT IN NY

I've adopted the theme 'Night & Day' (or 'Day & Night'!) for presenting my work at Loot.  I have selected key designs to be made in natural tone leather, and setting the black and natural leather pieces against each other lends a great dynamic to my display.

SIERAAD - AMSTERMDAM

It was wonderful to return to Amsterdam (one of my favourite cities) and Sieraad this year.  I loved the very different Dutch and continental audience and of course catching up with my stockists and connecting with new ones too.
