COMMISSIONS : MADE TO ORDER
Alongside the work you will find in my online shop I also take on many commissions, big or small, in my studio. If you visit Studio 9 at Manchester Craft and Design Centre in person, you can always speak to me about something specific you would like making. Otherwise do get in touch if you see something in my online shop which you would like to discuss further. Here are a few examples of my recent orders ….
A Gift Voucher into a personalised bag
"“She absolutely loves it. Thank you so much!”"
This is a recent bag I made for a customer whose family had bought a voucher from me for her special birthday during lockdown. They wanted her to be able to visit me in the studio to create a bag based on a combination of what she saw and what she needed. This is what we came up with!
A love letter back home
"“Your masterpiece is no longer a simple commodity to me, it has become a vehicle for a story that has documented this beautiful process”"
This customer was from China, studying, and came into my studio looking for something he could send back home to someone who he secretly admires. So he chose the colour which reminds him of her, combined 2 styles of travel bags he took a shine to and added her initials to it.
A personal gift to yourself
"“Received today and I love it! Thank you very much”"
In response to a recent Instagram post showing some ways of personalising my products, this customer ordered a gift for herself to add to pieces I’ve made for her in the past.
Apple Pencil Holder
"“Thanks for my gifts!! I love them!”"
I recently purchased a new Apple Pencil and found I was constantly dropping it or it was falling off the magnetised side of my iPad. I decided to make a cushioned home for it, so now even if I drop it, it has a soft fall! Since then, I’ve tweaked the design and made a few more, including this for another customer. Together with this mini travel pouch for her jewellery when she’s next on her holidays.
