A Pop-up Shop at MIY Workshop

POP-up shop at MIY Workshop

For the next 2 Saturdays MIY Workshop will be turning into a pop-up shop selling gorgeous leather goods, screen printed scarves and jewellery by local designer-makers: Holly Murray, Sophie Darling and Marie Walshe.

We’ll be open on Saturday 29th November and 6th December from 11am to 6pm.

MIY Workshop is at 33 North Road in the North Laine area of central Brighton, just up the hill from Infinity Foods.

Treat yourself to a bit of quality Christmas shopping and maybe a treat for yourself too?!  That is if I haven’t bought everything myself before you get there…..

Interview in November’s Viva Brighton Magazine

A few weeks ago I was interviewed by the very lovely Lizzie Lower for a feature in this month’s Viva Brighton magazine.  Here’s the rather fab end result!

Lizzie is a great interviewer, very relaxed and easy to talk to, but somehow manages to coax out the most interesting and relevant stories. Of the many free magazines that you see around Brighton, I think Viva stands out; it’s beautifully designed, draws on Brighton’s creative community for an eye-catching cover each month and always has several interviews and articles that I enjoy reading on a wide range of subjects. In fact, over the page from me this month is an interview with a good friend of mine – the fabulously creative Holly Murray, creator of beautiful leather bags and accessories.  More on that and a pop-up shop at MIY Workshop to follow……!

This month’s Viva is all about Brighton’s thriving independent High Street.  Pick up a copy and have a read, I think you’ll enjoy it.
