As we count down to our Creative Christmas Market (30th Nov. 1st & 2nd Dec) we will be inviting you to meet the artists and makers taking part in our 2018 market - welcome to part three!
Use & Enjoy
Use & Enjoy make clothes that double as artworks. Run by two friends, an artist (Matthew Miller) and a clothing designer (Katy Dixon).
They make hand collaged sweatshirts and t-shirts using recycled fabric from fabric hangers and ends of rolls. Matthew cuts motifs from fabric to create artworks for the jumpers and Katy assembles them on.
The fabrics they choose to use are colourful, textural & tactile materials, making the clothing fun and enjoyable to wear. Each piece is handmade and slightly different, so each garment is unique. A truly wearable artwork - a great gift this Christmas !
