Creative Spaces Part 2

Following on from last weeks creative spaces feature there are three more folksy sellers featured today. Thanks to Bonita Keay, Hannah Pinnock and Momtaz Begum-Hossain who have let us into their world.

First off is Hannah Pinnock who is based in Lulworth, Dorset. You can read up on Hannah via her blog and buy her lovely resin and silver jewellery via her folksy shop.

Hannah works with silver and resin, the versatility of which, offers a mixture of many qualities including high gloss finishes & unlimited inclusions, resulting in pieces, which are mystical, lively and enchanting.

This is a Silver Gripped Pebble Love Heart necklace set into blue hand pigmented resin which is then gripped by the handmade brushed sterling silver clasp. View it in Hannah’s Folksy shop here.

She takes pride in hand crafting each piece, every one an individual gem to capture the imagination. Hannah works with found objects using iridescent and translucent pigments to hand dye the resin, and this is where it all takes place. It looks like a great workshop with loads of space.

The second folksy seller is
Bonita Keay (Beaky), who lives in a little victorian terrace where she knits, crochets and sews. You can find out more about Bonita via her blog. Here are just a few items in her shop, pin cushions, lavender dolls, bags and scarfletts, i love them all!

Here is Bonita’s workspace, she has to keep it tidy as i mentioned before she lives in a little terrace house. Looks like a great use of space, and very tidy too!

The third maker is
Momtaz Begum-Hossain who lives in Greenwich, South East London. Momtaz makes Colourful, shiny, textured, felty, knitted accessories, textiles and sewn things. You can visit her folksy shop here, her blog here and her website here. Below are a few brooches from Momtaz’s folksy shop.

Momtaz crafts all over her flat,in the bedroom, living room and a little ‘office’ space in the corner of a spare room she shares.Here she is busy at her sewing machine.

and when Momtaz says she crafts anywhere, she really does, even in bed!

So that’s it folks, thanks for taking part, and thanks for visiting, I’m off to list some items on my online shops now, I’m feeling inspired!

    Thanks again Lauren for posting about my workspace and for your lovely comments. It isn’t always that tidy!

    This is so lovely of you. So odd seeing my workshop on the net!!
    I’d also like to claim my space is always this tidy, but I confess I did a bit of shuffling about up pre photos!(it needed one anyway)
    Great feature, and fascinating to see other peoples spaces.
