Craft Scotland Summer Show

A fab festival destination, is the Craft Scotland event promoting makers, on the second floor of the beautiful White Stuff Boutique on George Street, Edinburgh. I was invited a to a VIP blogger event and was simply blown away by the beauty of the pieces and the creativity and charm of the makers I met.

Orkney girls

Pictured above are both collections by Orkney designers, chatting away to Kirsteen Stewart, we realised that we had sat next to each other and chatted over lunch in Spitalfields Market two years ago at London Design Week.

mood board

Kirsteen then led us all through the process of making a mood board, an invaluable activity if you are doing anything creative, doing up a house, any work project, I am going to make one up for the Autumn/Winter collection for the French clothes I sell, to inspire my customers.

Knitted necklaces

Gilly Langton came all the way form Plockton and demonstrated the art of knitting necklaces and gave us all a beautiful pair of earrings – thank you Gilly

Ties by Unified Space

Niki Fulton, of Unified Space, and I chatted for hours, I had to tear myself away from her tie collection, inspired by Fennel, Scandinavia and Brittany, I could have listened to her stories of visiting Brittany as a child all evening…

Another favourite were these wonderfully simple ceramics –
