We will feature our favourite creative ones on our blog and social media every week.

Here’s my one. I love this project Wrap Your Veg.

Clay Date in Suffolk

17 March 2017

I spent the day with illustrator and ceramicist Annabel Pearl, at her lovely home and ceramic workshop in Suffolk.  Annabel makes a wonderful hot tea, using sage, honey and ginger. A special cold remedy! These are just some of the things I made for an upcoming commission project. I’ll reveal more very soon!

There’s something really rewarding about working with delicious porcelain.

Recognise this little face?

Funny porcelain forks, knives and spoons. All testers for an upcoming commission.

NEW! SCP Earthenware Bear and Bird

6 March 2017

New to store is the beautifully made Bear and Bird earthenware figures. Made in collaboration with London store SCP.

The creative process happened in one of the last remaining factories in Stoke-on-Trent. It’s so fantastic to be able to travel there, meet the makers and watch how the products develop into the finished piece. I loved looking at how different glazes can completely transform the piece.

Mask Making Masterclass with Creative Learning in Aberdeen

17 February 2017

I’ve returned back from a fantastic weekend in my old stomping ground Aberdeen feeling very inspired. It’s been a delight to work with Creative Learning, which is a council-run initiative to promote arts, culture and creativity within the community.

What I enjoy most is being creative and share that with others so I hosted a masterclass Mask Making workshop with some really enterprising, creative people. I even had a bit of time to make some pom poms!

#pompom making day today for @inspirationabdn @creativelearning #creative with Elaine Grant @misse

(Using chairs to make pom poms!)

It was so great to see the creative process in action at the Mask Making Masterclass. Check out all the amazing masks!

We initially looked at photos of all types of masks from different cultures, made from a variety of materials and how they can convey personality. It could be physical features, personal interests or even down to favourite colours. Everyone then got to work thinking how that applies to their own personality and decide what sort of mask to make.

I’m so pleased to see how different everyone’s masks looked in the end.

Thank you to Creative Learning for inviting me to be part of such a creative bunch.
