About Christine Shephard Designs

Christine Shephard Designs

Handmade bags, book covers, scarves, art & accessories

I'm a textile artist and designer/maker. I live on the Sussex coast within earshot of the sea and a short walk to the beach, which I never tire of exploring. Most days I'm busy at my sewing machine or in my workshop, designing and making, accompanied by the radio and the cries of the gulls.

My designs are a blend of contemporary style and traditional crafts, often including a nod to the past in my selection of materials. Each item is carefully created to be just that bit different.

I love what I do, I love every item I make, and I believe it shows in the quality of my work.

As well as creating original fabrics by painting, dyeing and felting, I like to make use of rescued vintage textiles and good quality fabric remnants. I often pick up fabric pieces on my travels and receive others from generous friends. Whatever the source, they are all treasured and are the inspiration behind many of my designs.

Details of craft fairs, exhibitions and other events where you can see me and my work can be found on my website at
