Donna Wilson x Land Of Nod

17 November 2016

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We can finally share Donna’s exclusive collaboration with US brand Land Of Nod. The perfect pieces to deck the halls!

We love Land Of Nod’s unique approach to designing products for children and families, with a nod towards the past and re-exploring childhood favorites. Donna’s Holiday Helpers feature on decorations, stockings, a fabric advent calendar and even tree skirt to sit your gifts. Find your nearest Land Of Nod store here.

Now Showing: Goose The Bear with Ljubljana Puppet Theatre

27 April 2016

Did you ever want to see Big Ted come to life? Well this month in Ljubljana, Slovenia you have the chance to see him walking, talking even swimming!

Friday saw the premiere of children’s story Goose the Bear, the first puppet show to feature Donna Wilson’s wonderful woolly creations.  Goose the Bear is a heart-warming German tale written by Katja Gehrmann. A bear gets more than he bargained when he rescues an egg from the jaws of a hungry fox. The egg hatches a confused little gosling who believes he is a bear, and tries to prove this to his newfound mother the bear.

We feel so privileged to have worked with Lljubljana Puppet Theatre on this project. We hope our lovely fans get the chance to visit. Tickets are still available to buy here.

Ljubljana Puppet Theatre specialises in puppet shows and drama performances for both young and adult audiences in a grand building with 6 in-house venues with almost 1000 seats overall. The Theatre pays special attention to the cultural education and care for the Slovenian puppet heritage.

When you step into the cosy auditorium, you are greeted by our tall signature knitted trees. You will find that absolutely everything from the stage, to the surrounding walls and ceiling is dressed in our brightly patterned lambswool. Look out for the Hungry Fox, the Mischievous Squirrel and of course the stars of the show Big Bear and the Little Goose!

 

 

Donna was so thrilled for this unique opportunity when she was approached by the Lljubljana Puppet Theatre last year. She has been very much involved in the production process from the beginning and even flew out with the family to Ljubljana to check out the rehearsals. Everything has been knitted in our London studio whilst the Theatre’s skilled team of performers and makers in their spectacular workshop made the magic happen on stage. We hope we can take the show on the road soon!

Donna Wilson + SCP at Milan Furniture Fair 2016

8 April 2016

It’s the 55th year of the Milan Furniture Fair/ Salone Internazionale del Mobile and my friends SCP will launch this latest range of Frank, Ernest and Henry Pouffes at the show next week!

This new knitted Stitch pattern is reminiscent of traditional Swedish folk designs, in a natural muted colour palette of grey, blue and rust.

The wool is specially spun and dyed in England and then woven in Wales using a time-honoured double cloth weaving technique. Soft, shapely and robust enough to roll down hills, the pouffe collection is also available in Nos Da, Bora Da, Zig Zag and Braid Caspian fabric.

SCP’s main exhibition will be to launch their new Sofa in Sight upholstery collection, which presents six sofas by six designers: Michael Anastassiades, Konstantin Grcic, Faudet-Harrison, Matthew Hilton, Lucy Kurrein and Terence Woodgate. You can read more about it here.

If you are in Milan next week, stop by the SCP stand to have a look!
