Featured makers for August.
Better late than never ! its been a whirlwind few weeks and I am sorry that this is a bit later than normal. Our two new makers have had a couple of weeks at Margot already but let me introduce them …. firstly we have Lizzie Lee, ex design graduate , mother and now a talented designer maker based in nearby Shoreham by Sea. Lizzie makes a range of lampshades, tealight lanterns and home accessories using recycled milk bottles as her primary material. She then fuses swatches and pieces of vintage crocheted fabrics and lace within the layers of plastic. This process creates a delicate, ethereal surface which lets the light shine through. At Margot we love Lizzie’s delicate lampshades and coordinating ceramic lace covered door knobs.
To find out more about Lizzie’s sustainable design ethos and see her full range find her online at http://www.lizzielee.com/

Our second maker ( or makers) are Maria Perryman and Kay Piper, who are known as Two P’s in a Pod.
Worthing based friends Maria and Kay are passionate makers and are really connected to the local crafting community, they work on numerous arts and crafts but are showing their range of charming wooden gifts at Margot. Each piece has been hand painted and we have a range of money boxes, coasters, small framed artworks, Kokeshi doll figures and little boats in different sizes available. at Margot we especially love the little boats and think that they make great small gifts.
