Packaging  My pendant lights are my favourite to pack as they come in these lovely branded boxes. The boxes are made from recycled cardboard and I use my amazing Cricut maker machine to draw my design directly onto the lid of the boxes. This means that I dont have to get extra packaging stickers printed and it means that I only make as many branded boxes as I need at the time reducing any excess waste  . . . #marchmeetthemaker #btnetsy #etsyuk #pendantlight #ligthingstyle #interiorstyle #designd Packaging, Recycling, Pendant Lighting, Pendant Light, Pendant, Packaging Stickers, Waste

Todays March Meet The Maker is self care  I love being outdoors and spend a lot of time out in the countryside going for walks. I also try my best to walk to and from the studio everyday. Even though some days I dread it (there are a lot of hills on my journey) it gives me a great start to the day and gives me a bit of time to myself clears my head and gets me ready for the day ahead  . . . #marchmeetthemaker #btnetsy #etsyuk #selfcare #makerslife #naturelover #walking #studiolife #lampshademake Outdoors, Studio, Everyday, Care, Walks, Start, Countryside, Journey

Day 12 of March Meet The Maker is Learning Curve  Some lampshades can be a challenge to make especially if they are large or an usual shape. Even though these can be challenging I really like overcoming these problems and learning from them! As I have a variety of shapes and styles of lampshades that I can make in lots of different fabrics and papers I am continually learning new tips and tricks on how to make them!  . . . #marchmeetthemaker #btnetsy #etsyuk #learningcurve #constantlylearning #m Home Décor, Lamp Shade, Different Fabrics, Fabrics, Shape, Lamp

Rough/Mock up is todays prompt March Meet The Maker  I will always start by drawing my ideas by hand then scanning them in to play about with scale and repeat on my computer. However if Im lino printing the designs once I have drawn the design out by hand Ill transfer it onto a piece of lino and start carving it. Its quite a quick process and this way I can start printing and trying out different colour ways and repeats and can see it come to life on the fabric! . . . #marchmeetthemaker #btnetsy Play, Draw, Printing, Rough, Scale, Process

Day 2 of March Meet The Maker is all about hands at work  I have realised over the last few years that I love making things with my hands and even though I could outsource my products to a company to make I would miss the aspect of making too much to do this! There is something so satisfying about making something yourself seeing the process and ending with a finished product! As I was looking through photos to find one for todays prompt I realised that in most of what I do I use my hands. Wheth Company, Meet, Hands

Hand printing lampshades today! I used to screen print all of my fabric to make my products from but I now have a brilliant company who screen prints it for me. However I realised that I missed doing the printed process myself so decided to introduce some lino prints into my range a few years ago. Each element of these lino designs is printed by hand meaning every one is unique!  . . . #handprinted #doitfortheprocess #handmadelampshade #workinprogress #behindthescenes #studiolife #linoprint #fab Printed, Linoprint, Lino Prints, Lino Print, Lino Design
