For this project I have found some highly skilled designers and makers in my local area of North East London, working in all kinds of spaces from tiny garden sheds to railway arches.
Their wares being sold in some of grandest stores in London. The series features a ceramist, a saddler and bespoke leather maker, a silversmith, up cycle clothing designers, cake maker and decorator, and a printmaker who’s studio serves coffee and homemade cakes, a up cycling upholsterer, a slower gin brewer who paints and sells canvas’s of birds, a weaver who produces scarves, a quilt maker who creates bespoke pieces.
Each sitter actively chooses where and how they would like to be portrayed.”
