Clerkenwell Embroideries

I'm currently working on a series of embroideries inspired by the people of Clerkenwell. Since January, I've been taking photos and drawing people from Leather Lane, Smithfields Market and St John's. The embroideries will be shown at Craft Central alongside a few drawings and ceramics in an exhibition with designer Freya Lines in August. Freya will be at Craft Central's 'Made in Clerkenwell' this weekend, so make sure you visit and check out her wonderful products.

Above is a preview of some completed embroideries - one from Leather Lane market which I have posted on here before, two men outside the garden of The Order of St John and a hipster loitering near Saffron Hill. I'll have more details about the exhibition in the coming months.


Rosie sent me this picture of her putting one of my ceramics to good use as a soap dish.
