Folksy designers in their studios

by Camilla

As anyone who has seen our Revealing Craft book (or follows our Instagram feed) will know, we love seeing where designers and makers work – whether that’s a fully-equipped studio, a kitchen table, a sewing nook under the stairs, a garden shed or a desk by the window. What people make is often reflected in the spaces they make it in. So in our search for new banners for the Folksy homepage, we asked our designers and makers to send in pictures of themselves in their workspaces. We were pretty overwhelmed by the response and we wanted to share them all. So here is a fascinating peek through a letterbox-shaped window into the workspaces of designers and makers across Britain…

Keep and eye out on the Folksy homepage to see which ones you spot.

We’d love to see even more, so if you have a Folksy shop, email a picture of your workspace to community@folksy.co.uk. The images need to measure 1440 pixels wide x 440 pixels high and be at least 144dpi. We’re looking for beautiful, in-focus shots, ideally showing you in your studio. (Tips: try to avoid shooting in artificial lighting or very bright natural light, and use a tripod if you can to get a nice, clear, well-lit shot.) We’re really looking forward to seeing and sharing more glimpses into the working life of Britain’s crafters.

You can find more Folksy studios on Instagram using the #studiofolksy hashtag.

Love seeing all those workspaces. It really brings it home that this is a bunch of real people making stuff they love. What a nice idea, Folksy.

Wow – how tidy you all are – Maybe when it quietens down in January I will be able to photograph mine, or let me know when you do a feature on “Oh goodness me” studios! :D
