Maker Spaces Pop-up Shop at West Elm

17 April 2015

Yesterday we were all very glad to be included in the launch of Emily Quinton’s debut book Maker Spaces – in which Donna’s studio and home is featured and is even on the front cover! 

The launch took plate at West Elm London where we also participated in the Maker Spaces pop-up shop. We had a lovely time at the shop and enjoyed meeting fans and making new friends. 

Here are some snapshots from the event: 

Congrats to Emily on the lovely book – and a special thank you to the West Elm London team for making us feel so welcome!

Donna Wilson Book Launch + Happy Christmas!

20 December 2013

It’s nearly Christmas now and we have had such a busy holiday period! Today is our last day in the studio for 2013 but before we close the year of our tenth anniversary, we’re proud to announce the release of the new Donna Wilson book:  Odd Objects & Textiles.

This book is the first complete retrospective of Donna’s work over the past decade. With each page, you get a glimpse into Donna’s world and insight on her inspirations and design processes. Vibrant photographs document her collections, past and present.

Donna would like to add:
“Doing this book has made me look back on all the projects I have been involved in and the wonderful people I have worked with along the way. I would like to say a special thanks to all my customers, some have collected my work, and supported me from the very beginning. Thank you, without you I wouldn’t be able to make the things I make!”

And with that, Happy Christmas everyone, Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you all in 2014!


Creative Creatures Donna Wison’s Kids Activity Book

12 February 2013
Yes, my kids activity book is out! I’m very excited. Published by Macmillan. It’s a book full of different activities to do with your kids ( or on your own!)
you can buy it from our web site here:
 but please support your local book store!
It is full of step by step activities for boys and girls aged 8 +
some of the activities involve cutting and sticking paper, and some are a little more technical and use a needle and thread.

This is one of our favourites- making a ‘tidy up ‘ robot with house hold waste!

and a kite!
Each page has easy to follow steps, and lovely little colourful scenes- I really enjoyed making them! …for a couple more behind the scenes have a look at  my other blog : http://birdieandbear.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/creative-creatures-kids-activity-book.html
