Over the next few weeks we’ll be featuring some of our artists and craftspeople for our next fair on Saturday 9th November. First up is Annie Lawson of Goss Bag:
I am a cartoonist who has progressed into ‘cartooning in wool’. My knitted phone cases are flip-top design and are sturdy, being each one knitted by myself. There are also ‘key slugs’ to keep bunches of keys in, and knitted bumblebees that have not use other than embellishment. I have also recently added fabric holdalls to the sturdy bag range. My drawn cartoons also feature, in the form of greeting cards printed at home on elephant dung paper. I love making useful things that are beautiful and often humorous. ‘Keep it Material’ is my motto – I keep to a small phone! My studio is with East Street Arts in Leeds.
