Skylark Designs

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: South East   

I am a self-taught crafter specialising in crochet, watercolour artwork and postage stamp decoupage. I love to use colour and texture in my designs of adult and childrens clothing in contemporary designs. I am inspired by British Wildlife in my paintings, particularly birds.

My postage stamp products are very popular and include placemats and coasters and bird boxes. I love to upcycle items when possible. My work is varied between crafts but a broad representation is on my website. Please take a look. I am happy to take commissions for work.

SOBU (Sonja Bucherer)

category: Fashion Accessories   Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles - Clothing   

region: London   

I’m a north London based designer/maker. My speciality is mixing new and recycled materials, combining different patterns and textures to create highly individual pieces. For the past 13 years I have worked as a textile designer (appliqué and embroidery) for two international exhibiting studios. My designs have sold to high street brands as well as exclusive fashion and interior companies in New York, Australia, Japan, Italy, Paris, Frankfurt and London.
I’ve always loved making things and enjoy the whole creative process: To come up with an idea – then cut, sew, knot, stamp, iron, thread, glue, label – whatever brings the idea to life. I’m an avid collector of fabrics, buttons, ribbons and other curiosities. Beautiful stones, driftwood, books, films, food…all sorts of bizarre discoveries are my inspiration. As well as creating designs commercially and for my own SOBU collection, I have dedicated time over the past nine years to sharing and passing on my passion for the craft by running stitch clubs and craft projects at various north London primary schools. I hope you enjoy some of my creations. Please visit my website via the link below, where you can browse my work or contact me for commercial or private commissions.
