About Pipcicle

How I Got Here

I’ve been a creative soul all my life, enjoyed life as an actor, gardener, primary school teacher, arts project coordinator and now small handmade indie maker.

I’ve two children, Pip and Bubs, 8 and 5. I started sewing after I had Pip and am entirely self taught. I found a much needed outlet of calm at the helm of the sewing machine.

My distant family were lace makers, think that’s where the creativity comes from. I sew when I can.

Pipcicle started off through gifting pieces I made. It wasn’t until I was asked by recipients to make pieces for them to give as gifts that I thought seriously that my work could be popular.

I have a humble sewing nook in my conservatory as I love natural light. Often surrounded by a popped rice cereal and wooden train track strewn floor.

I love a charity shop. From my teenage years in the nineties, with finds of velvet jackets and oatmeal cardigans. All Pipcicle pieces start off as a pair of curtains or dress.  I reuse fabrics in all of my pieces.

I love the band Madness, enjoy a tipple of gin and drink copious amounts of tea.  My other passion is working with Now and Then Theatre, the photo is from our upcoming production Rumble, where I aptly play a seamstress!  Photo credit : (the very talented) Louise Stoner
