It is wonderful working with architectural glass artist Rachel Welford on the refurbishment of La Lanterna restaurant here in Scarborough. Rachel has been commissioned by Rachel and Giorgio Alessio to produce stunning glass panels for the restaurant.
The wonderful artist and illustrator Adam Larkum has produced a new logo for me for Flighty Bantam Hats…I am currently planning my new collection.
My hats are now sending me postcards! This lovely couple bought two of my hats from Woolfest last June as they were planning an Arctic Cruise. They said they were warm even in temperatures of -15 in their ice hotel…
I am currently designing two plays by Sir Alan Ayckbourn for the Stephen Joseph Theatre. Whilst the designs are still under wraps I have been using Pinterest as a design tool so that busy designer and director can communicate across sometimes considerable distances! I trialled Pinterest on ‘Scarborough Cinderella’ and ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ at the end of last year and have also introduced it to Theatre students at the University of York. Its a great way to share visuals.
