November - Yvonne Peabody - Gem Trees
“When my daughter was born, I decided I wanted to be at home for her. I have a gem tree that I bought in America many years before that I always loved. So I said to myself, “I can do that”, 4 weeks later I had my first craft show. I took 12 trees and sold 8 of them, which definitely inspired me. A while later I started making jewellery. That was 15 years ago. I later discovered magnetism, so no more fiddly clasps! So here I am today with my gem trees and inspirational, easy to wear jewellery.”
December - Ruth Rignall - Knitting/Fabric
Ruth enjoys hand knitting as an instant and portable way of responding to the world around her and the ideas that develop from what she sees. She likes the balance of control and surprise in the process of designing the knitted piece for transforming into felt, the soft wool yarn becoming a sturdy fabric. Yarn to her, has it own story, which makes it interesting when it is used to make an object, such as a bag that will be used or an item to be worn.
