Ship-Shape is taking a break for a week but before I go I wanted to share with you the outcome of the Tatty Devine workshop at the Soma Gallery yesterday. Tatty creators Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine were on hand to sign copies of their new book and teach willing students, yummy mummies and local fashionistas how to create their iconic tape measure rosettes.
As eight of us eager beavers took our seats around a table filled with brightly coloured tape measures, scissors and hole punchers we listened as Harriet walked us through how to turn your average tape measure into a quirky brooch. On paper the process is remarkably simple but several of us had trouble remembering our 3 x tables when it came to measuring out holes to punch! The result, below, was so satisfying that it compelled me to buy a copy of How to Make Jewellery with Tatty Devine so I can start making more of my own jewellery again. Did you make it to the workshop? If so let me know what you thought of it by commenting below.
