MY BUZZ

It's given me extra exposure once I had been selected as #SBS. It makes me feel I am part of a band of small businesses experiencing similar things.

MY BIO

Phiona Richards creates interactive book sculptures and intriguing jewellery using traditional needlework techniques. "Having been brought up with a ‘make do and mend’ mentality I tend to collect and gather materials including books near the end of their existence and regenerate them into pleasing tactile structures using a variety of needlework techniques. Although they appear to be fragile and delicate they are quite robust and interaction becomes a therapeutic experience on many sensory levels."

MY BUSINESS TIPS

Always try and visit the galleries and shops you wish to stock your work in. Don't turn up impromptu hoping that the owner of the shop with have the time to see you and your work. Always make an appointment.
