The lemon hound – hand dyed yarns, textiles and creative workshops.
I have a small studio space in the seaside location of the creative quarter of Folkestone, Kent. Being surrounded by like-minded creatives, beautiful scenery, and vibrant colour makes me feel very lucky indeed.
I have over 30 years experience in textile art and design, and 20 years as a Florist. There is nothing I like more than combining exciting colour and texture to create truly unique pieces of textile art. I dye and sell yarn, which are sold in my studio in The Old High Street and on Etsy, I stock other indie dyers work too…so plenty to inspire you for your next project
There are an array of exciting creative workshops on offer, in crochet, knitting, felt making, rug making and flowers. There is something for everyone, be it for the complete beginner to advanced student.
I am starting a social gathering each month, somewhere we can go and share ideas, projects and generally have some fun. Details of which to follow shortly..
.. and lastly, if you are wondering about the name? ‘Rigsby’ my lemon coloured basset hound was never far from my side in all my creative adventures. He has sadly crossed the rainbow bridge, but his name and memory lives on. I am the crazy basset hound lady and am sure there will be the pattering of basset paws at some point in the near future! Dogs are always welcome in the studio and we have refreshments for them too!
Any questions please feel free to email me. Hope to see you soon! x
