When did you start your business?
I started in 2014 doing the occasional market but didn’t really get going till about 2018
What inspires your work?
Along with making I am a graphic designer and vintage trader and both of these inspire each other. I love old printed designs, illustrations and ephemera, taking something old and unloved and up-cycling to show its beauty
Where do you find the materials that you work with?
They are all up-cycled from junk shops and jumble sales. I am always on the lookout for interesting pieces.
What do you do when you're not working in Made In Ashford?
I work as a graphic designer, and I do vintage markets in Kent and SE London.
What is your best seller?
My upcycled alphabet cards- simple mounted old game cards on recycled card with recycled coloured envelopes.
