About The Green Shed
The Green Shed is a beautiful quiet space in my garden in Muswell Hill London N10 with apple trees and a giant fig tree, where I hold children's and adult's vintage fabric parties and workshops. It's also available to rent for meetings, courses, and different groups. It seats up to 14 round the table but more chairs can be fitted in plus there's a settee with cushions. It's cool in Summer as it's very well insulated and there are electric heaters for Winter. It's dry and fresh and it feels a bit like a cosy beach hut inside. There is nice lighting, old rugs and a kettle plus lots of wine glasses. I can provide plates, cutlery etc too.
I've been a textile artist since about 1994 when I discovered the pure joys of vintage fabric. Over the years I've made cards, cushions, bunting, pictures, and patchwork quilts and sold them to shops around the country. I sold lots and lots of cushions and lavender hearts to Cath Kidston and I had a shop in Crouch End, London where I painted old furniture and made quilts and patchwork lavender bags and sold the work of other artists too. I some times have Pop up Shops in my home in Muswell Hill and Stylist Selina Lake did a book signing for her beautiful book Homespun Style at one of them. My home and work are on a few pages Selena's book Pretty Pastel Style.
