This adorable little maker looks in her element as she makes a brooch using a skill called tatting. Makers Dozen, a collective of 12 designer / makers visited local manufacturers who opened their doors over 25 years ago, and devised contemporary styled making workshops inspired by the heritage skills that make up the fabric of the factories history. Part of the Art in Manufacturing project, other skills such as #brushmaking , #tatting , #printing and #letterpress were offered to festival goers in these free workshops.

When you can't find your paintbrushes - make your own with what you forage from the garden and find in your fabric stash 🤣
Continuing on from my brush building, I have discovered that the best way to create a grain is to first make a repeating pattern (otherwise you can see where the grains join together, and it doesn’t look great). I recently took a trip to Venice and went crazy with photographs of textures. Here’s a repeat pattern made from an image of the floor. Works pretty well! 😊👌🏻 . • • • #repeat #pattern #tile #floor #brushes #brushmaking #inspire #procreate #pixelmator #illustrator #handy #knowhow #brushobsession #blackandwhite #marble #ground #drawing #layout #repeatpattern #contrast #artist #backgrounds #cracks #art #artist #followme #follow #comments #likeforlikes #rawillustration

A collection of all the brushes that were made yesterday in the #drawingweek workshop, led by @colin_rennie. I will definitely be making my own brushes from now on.
Some of the ink paintings I made with my brush...
As part of #drawingweek I took part in a workshop led by @colin_rennie. We were shown how to make our own brushes from scrap material, such as rope. I shaped the handle of my brush from a driftwood branch (see process photos) It was a really interesting workshop to be part of, I had so much fun making my own brush and painting with it!

Some very big brushes I made today for my brush making class in #drawingweek @sunderlanduni_artscreative. these were made from scrap, I carved the wooden handles from salvaged 2 by 2 and an old broom handle the ferrule is part of a table leg and some silicone sheet, and the bristles are manilla fibers from some rope. This was a really fun workshop to hold so thanks to everyone who took part so enthusiastically. #brushmaking #painting #recycle #upcycle

#FridayFact All our wooden brushes started life as simple block of wood, which we then turn into stunning, handcrafted brushes using a mixture of traditional techniques and modern machinery #woodenbrushes #brushmakers #brushmaking #brushexpert #brushexperts #brushfactory #kentfactory #handmadeinBritain #madeinbritain #madeinuk #handmadebrushes #handmandeinbritain #bestbritishbrushes #heritagebrands #ukfactory #kentbrushes #luxurybrushes #luxury #bestbrushes #brushesofinstagram
Prototyping when I should be working. But I guess this is work - just not the things on my to do list. After months of searching for a company that ethically harvests natural fibres for brush making, and pays their workers a fair wage, the wait is over and I’m so happy. Pictured here is Tampico, and Coconut bristle, with walnut, brass and sycamore fixings. Il be making loads more of these, for sure, but let me know below what you think! Il have a few of these decorative brushes for sale @carve.london and I’m hoping to get some in my shop update in December! 🌿
Perfect for medium hair, our MHS18 oval handmade brush is made from both satinwood and beechwood. The indian, pure white bristles are meticulously stitched into the brush using a technique called ‘hand-drawing’ - an age-old method only Kent still use in the UK. #kentbrushes #luxurybrushes #luxury #bestbrushes #handmade #handmadebrushes #handmadewoodenbrushes #woodenhandmade #handmadeinBritain #handdrawing #satinwood #beechwood #bestbrushes #bestbritishbrushes #hairbrushes #haircare #haircareexpert #brushmaking #brushexperts #brushexpert #brushfactory #brushmakers #bristlebrushes #naturalbristlebrush #brushesforlife #brushesofinstagram

Another project I mailed out yesterday was my entry for the Cahaba Brush-Off, a shaving brush contest. I was honored that @manonfirecreations chose my brush as his prize, as Mr. Sallows is a seasoned brushmaker himself. Definitely check out his creations, they’re carved by hand and awesome. Other participants included the winner @rich_man_shaving , @eborraga , @turn.n.shave , @thatdarnrob , @lutinbrushworks , @coloradorazordesigns , @bobbymoffett , @ttffcraft , @cravingshaving , @turnedtimber , @ozshaving , and more. Check them out! It was my first attempt at a shaving brush, and I enjoyed the whole process- creating a blank, carving and finishing, then setting it with a 24mm @maggardrazors 70/30 badger/boar knot. Big thanks to Ernie Borraga of Shaving Yeti and to Maggards for sponsoring the contest. I can’t promise I’ll make many brushes in the future, but I had a lot of fun!

The non-scratch, ion quills in our AirHedz Glo range have been proven to have many restorative benefits on hair: the capillary vessels, which are responsible for the transfer of nutrients and the removal of waste products, become stimulated and the cuticle layer is tightened, which results in natural oils becoming sealed on the hair. This will protect your hair from daily UV and environmental damage, whilst also preventing split ends - leaving your hair soft, smooth and vitalised. #kentbrushes #luxurybrushes #luxury #bestbrushes #handmade #handmadebrushes #heritage #traditional #hairbrushes #haircare #haircareexpert #brushmaking #brushexperts #brushexpert #brushesofinstagram #ionbrush #hairtips #toptiptuesday #tiptuesday #hairadvice #tuesdayhairtip
