About A Nest of Gentle Makers

A Nest of Gentle Makers

Making functional yet beautiful things. Making and mending and feeding my creativity.

I have always been a maker- I knitted my first jumper at the age of ten, about the same time that I decided I wanted to be a doctor when I grew up, However, the creative urge has never left me and I love to knit, sew, draw, weave, cook, bake and grow my own food. Oh yes and did I mention spinning and dyeing wool?! There are simply not enough hours in the day.

I believe in living as sustainably as possible (whilst being kind to myself when I don't manage it), so mending is a way of life for me. I run creative retreats and love to teach visible mending. Whilst running the classes I put together a simple kit, initially in recycled egg boxes which people loved. This has now developed into a mending kit in a lovely felt roll.

I am also a keen weaver and love using natural fibres. My designs are simple and beautiful and use a variety of pure wools- some of them hand spun and/ or hand dyed using natural materials. Take a look at my shop and hopefully you will agree that a blanket draped across a bed, a chair ,or your shoulders will help you to relax and find peace and comfort.

    A gorgeous unwrapping of delight for mending the soul and hole. Nifty pockets to add important threads or swatches. Beautifully made with care and attention to detail.

    The blanket is an exquisite hand-made item. Beautiful to behold and a delight to touch. We love it. A real heir-loom piece! Delivery was super speedy too.
