... The studio ...In 2005 Georgia acquired her beautiful cricket pavilion studio. The local cricket club had built a new pavilion and were offering the old one to whoever was mad enough to try and move it. With the help of a crane and a tractor and trailer the pavilion moved perfectly to its new home on the family farm.... Time to further her knowledge ...In 2001 Georgia studied Contemporary Crafts for BA at Manchester Metropolitan University, specialising in Ceramics and Textiles. It was only in her third year that she discovered her love of screen printing and pattern making, a true light bulb moment!... Even further ...Wanting to further her knowledge in print; Georgia went on to study for a Masters in Surface Pattern Design at UCLAN in Preston in 2004.
... The first textiles job ...Moving to London in 2006, Georgia took a job with a textile printing factory, working in their design studio. Starting as a junior, she was soon promoted to assistant studio manager. If she thought she had learnt a lot at university, it was nothing compared to 3 years in industry.
... Leaving the smoke ...Missing her country roots and bursting with her own design ideas Georgia moved back to Yorkshire in 2009. With a small loan from her parents she bought a computer and set her business.
... expanding the product range ...Realising that selling ready made products, was actually easier than selling meterage of fabric, Georgia soon moved into sewing up cushions and making noticeboards. It wasn't until a chance encounter with an online clip that sparked the idea of making lampshades, now her best selling product.
