In the first of our stall holder blog posts for Sprin 2014 we welcome a Fairy Tale Fair newbie, the wonderful Jen Moules Textile Design. Find out more…
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
I am a British designer maker specialising in textile home wares, wallpapers and gifts.
Originally from Somerset I graduated from the Arts University College at Bournemouth in 2011 with a BA (Hons) in Textile Design and now work from my studio in Hampshire. I draw inspiration from my surroundings and have a passion for nature and wildlife which is reflected in both my textile designs and illustrative work.
My current range of products include greeting cards, gift wrap, prints, cushions, lampshades, fabrics and wallpapers and are available to buy from my online store.
I also offers a bespoke colour match service for all my products, am available to work freelance and commissions are always welcome!
How long have you been making your craft items?
Jen Moules Textile Design has been in business almost three years, since I graduated in July 2011.
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
Every exhibition or market I take part in there seems to be a different favorite each time but I can say the brighter, bolder colour combinations are always a a hit!
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
I have a real passion for screen printing. I love that no two prints are ever a like ensuring each product is unique and believe the screen print quality lends itself well to my quirky patterns and illustrations.
Will you have some special Spring time Easter creations for sale?
I will be selling a my new range of tea towels for the first time and a collection of gift wrap, perfect if you want to pick up a little gift for someone special.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
I have taken part in 16 events to date, ranging from small craft markets to large trade shows. I will be taking part in this year’s Brighton and Hove Artists Open House as well as returning to the Festival of Living Crafts at Hatfield House for the second year running. Both events are in May of this year so it’s going to be a very busy month!
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
I hope to expand my range of products but still ensuring all my work is produced in the UK, secure more stockist for my product line and find a regular local selling event.
