Meet the Maker: Keepers Makers

Friday, 8 March 2019 * 13:30 – 15:30
at the Exmoor Store

Jacquelyn has been illustrating all her life, recently combining her love of textiles by drawing with her vintage sewing machine and reclaimed fabric.

Jacquelyn lives and works in the Somerset harbour town of Watchet, using mixed media including recycled textile and inspired by the surrounding Quantock Hills and Exmoor meeting the stunning coastline. 

Keepers Makers is the mother and daughter team of Jacquelyn and Georgie who recycle fabric into all sorts of artwork, homeware and gifts, saving the textiles from landfill.
You can find more out about Keepers Makers by visiting www.keepersmakers.co.uk or better still come in and meet them both at Exmoor Store on Friday 8th March at 1.30pm to 3.30pm. Jacquelyn will be there with her vintage sewing machine, showing you how she illustrates with threads and fabric.

Our Pets Corner is expanding

As of today, we are stocking handmade dog collars and leads as well as foldable fabric water bowls in the Exmoor Store in Minehead.  Over the coming days we are going to upload images to the website, so you will be able to purchase these items directly online.

The leads are practical “multi-way” – added rings along the length allows for versatility and flexible control.  Here is Kate demonstrating how these multi-way leads work:

Meet the Artist: Jane Goodfellow

Jane Goodfellow will be in the Exmoor Store on Friday, 24 August 2018, from 6pm till 8pm. She will be working on one of her pieces of art while you can watch her and ask questions.  Currently we only sell Jane’s cards, but prints will be available soon.

A lifelong animal- and nature-lover, Jane draws and paints portraits of animals and people on commission, or when something about the subject intrigues her.  Working in a variety of media from watercolours, pencils and oils to mixed media, she will undertake to draw virtually anything from a gerbil to a house.

Her portraits and landscapes are in private collections in the UK, Canada, and South Africa.

Admission free.
