Temple & Webster’s artisan handmade market

Online shopping destination Temple & Webster launched their handmade market this morning featuring the beautiful work of seven Australian artisans. The collection of makers is curated by Jacqui Fink of Little Dandelion and includes Georgina Brown, Beth Emily, Gemma Patford, Kylie Johnson of Paper Boat Press, Alison Fraser of Slab and Slub, Kenya Paterson, and me.

I’m flattered to be included in this group of talented women and to have my work so beautifully shot with theirs. You can read more about all the artists on the Temple & Webster blog.

I created a small range of limited edition decorative vessels for the artisan’s market which feature ceramics together with tactile textured elements of leather and raw edged linen which are stitched, woven and crocheted. I enjoyed experimenting with the ceramic element in combination with the texture and contrasts of the other materials and techniques, and I love how they have evolved and turned out.

The Temple & Webster artisan handmade market is online for this week only, and the featured items are available at a reduced price during this time. This is the first in a series of handmade markets that Temple & Webster will be running this year, so sign up for their newsletter and stay in the loop. I have no doubt the talent in each themed market will be amazing. A huge thank you to Temple & Webster for supporting and showcasing handmade in this way, and to the always lovely Jacqui Fink for asking me to take part, for her love of handmade, and for seeking out and championing talented Australians.

Win a customised love seat from Freedom

Just in time for Valentines Day… win one of four customised love seats from Freedom! Four Australian artists (including me, eeep!) were given a bench seat from Freedom to get creative with. This is one of those secret projects I hinted that I’ve been working on this month. I started with the theme of a lovers’ secret garden and created a throw/loose upholstery, a huge tassel and did some weaving and wrapping on the love seat with copper thread. The fabric was digitally printed with a photo I took, then I painted on it and added some indigo and copper embroidery. I loved making this!

All you have to do to be in the running to win one of these gorgeous creations is enter the comp on Freedom’s Facebook page.

I was in amazing company with this project. The other three love seats were customised by Emily GreenLynes & Co and Georgia Perry.

It’s here… my digital magazine: SCOUT, has launched!

Sound the trumpets! Pass me a cup of tea or a stiff drink – either is fine… SCOUT is now available. If you like the red thread blog you’re going to love SCOUT magazine – it’s all this and a whole lot more. I’m so happy with the tutorials and they range from fairly simple (indigo dyed wooden beads) to a bit more challenging (a patchwork pillow, a Himmeli wreath and a hanging macrame herb garden). And more! There are also some really lovely recipes in the magazine, including ones that are perfect to make for gifts, and I made printable labels and tags for them too.

It’s 146 pages of great content – no ads. There are great wishlists and gift lists from some amazing stylists, creatives and bloggers. Also, if you purchase SCOUT magazine before Christmas Eve you’ll automatically go in the draw for a great giveaway – one person will win all 13 goodies.

I don’t want to give too much away, but here’s a sneaky peek of some of the pages. I’ll share some more during the week.

*Update on the kid’s car pillow sewing pattern. My apologies, it didn’t make it into the magazine, so I’ll have the tutorial here on the blog early in the new year.

I really have loved all the hard work it’s taken to put it together. My apartment is trashed though. I’ve been crafting and making and photographing in every corner and space I can find for what seems like forever.

Purchase your copy of SCOUT right here, right now. Yay!

SCOUT digital magazine is nearly ready to launch!

I’m so close to having SCOUT ready. So very close. It’s been a huge task, but I’ve loved it and I can’t wait to share the tutorials, printables, and inspirational finds with you. There are wish lists and gift lists from some of my favourite creatives and bloggers, and recipes from some amazing food bloggers. And a giveaway too.

One of the most difficult parts of the whole magazine was choosing a cover image, but I’m so happy with it so I thought I’d give you a sneaky peek.

Stay tuned – I’m almost ready to launch. The amount of content that’s specifically related to the festive season is minimal and the tutorials and recipes are perfect for this or any time of the year, so I’ve wanted to be totally happy with SCOUT instead of rushing to get it finished by a particular date.
