  • Fabric of the Week: Purple Thames batik

    This week’s fabric selection is of the Adire (tie-dye) variety. This is a handmade, hand-drawn batik fabric from Nigeria.

    Handmade by Sunday himself using an intricate method of drawing the patterns by hand in wax and then dyeing and melting in various stages to produce this intricate layered fabric design. This is one of my persnonal favourites. It was love at first sight!

    Here’s what we did with it.

  • Studio Glimpse- The Urbanknit Workspace

    There is nothing I love more than looking at the workspaces of creatives on the net. Pinterest is a fantastic source for this. Be it artists, furniture makers, illustrators, designers, anyone who MAKES. There is just something about a creative space. A place filled with colour, tools, ideas, scraps, inspiration and much more. A place to make a mess without it being considered a mess. A place to experiment and test. So many possibilities…

    Here is a little glimpse into my work space. Definitely my happy place. Apart from the obvious fabric, wool and equipment needed for work, it is home to quite a mix of what some would consider random objects. Postcards, books, origami, colouring books (to keep niece and nephews entertained) and more!
