Text Project

Bunting Bird and I had a stall

The first Winter stall – actually my first of the whole year. I spent last Winter shivering at the Tobacco Factory Sunday market, brrr. This stall was at the City of Bristol Collage in Ashley Down. I sold my Text Project, as seen here in my Etsy Shop.

Text Project

By taking quirky and inspiring mottos and sayings, mixing them with my own process of entering a dazed state of making through repetitive actions, this is my Text Project. I often have a market stall the Tobacco Factory Sunday markets, and various school fetes throughout Bristol.
Each piece is completely unique, with the lines drawn free-hand and each letter is hand cut. I use vivid-colored card for each design and a good quality mount. A simple yet elegant design for the home, and all made lovingly in Bristol
I have lots of popular pieces in stock. As well as this, I offer a bespoke service, so feel free to commission me.
I charge £6 for each 4” tall letter, and the mounting is at cost-price, i.e. an A3 sized piece would cost around £8 to mount. I arrange framing through Niche Frames, Bristol who can offer a large and varied range of framing options.
If you live out of Bristol, the cost of postage and packaging will be around £10 depending on the size of piece you select, although i prefer to hand-deliver as the work is easily damaged in the post. I will deliver for free if you live in the Bristol area!

Stall success!

Lucy and I had our stall! It was hugely successful, not just in terms of making a little bit of money (Enough to cover the stall and buy balloons and mulled wine) but it was also SUCH a fun weekend, I haven’t laughed so much in ages.

Angela & Yannick came to visit, they did some Blind Drawing workshops with us. Elena came too, I drew her and her wild hair a few times. Nicole came on the stall for Saturday. We were the ever expanding stall! We got a star for being the smiliest stall too.

Lucy’s bears were really successful, they have such character. We’re going to make some more of them together for the next stall. (Start the Bus has free stalls on Sundays?) No one bought my Nice, Love, Yes of Cup of Tea, but it was not the right place to sell those i think – they were quite expensive too.

Carboot Circus

I am working on the things I’m going to sell at Carboot Circus. So much to make, and it’s limitless – I can make as much or as little as I like. Feeling like this is not the thing i want to be making, but knowing that it’s not far off.

The aesthetic is simple, but i am keeping to the three important elements of the things I make;

  1. Accumulation obsession
  2. Color importance
  3. Labour intensity

So that’s good! Thinking about studiospaces – There are possibilities of finding a free one here in Bristol, run down buildings and disused basements. If i had the space, i would make the big, messy and scary things.
