We had the wonderful award-winning designer-maker Jane Blease in the Photo Studio the other day with her beautiful handcrafted products + Photographer Amy Walsh. Jane strives to use her materials in efficient + imaginative ways. In her current collection she intricately embroiders Walnut, Oak + Ash Veneers using a selection of vibrantly coloured threads to create mega stunning bespoke lampshades, framed artwork, jewellery + accessories.
Jane studied 3D Design at Manchester Metropolitan University + now has a successful shop/ studio in the Manchester Craft + Design Centre, she also stocks many galleries + independent boutiques in the UK. It’s well worth heading down to the Craft + Design Centre to see what people are creating.
