Jenny Sibthorp is a textile designer and print maker inspired by the colour and surroundings of her farm studio in the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset. She prints bold and often bright imagery to depict the flora, fauna and landscape of the area she lives and these are made into beautiful homewares and accessories. You can find out a bit more about Jenny in this interview.
Jenny screen prints much of her range by hand in her studio on card, leather and linen and all of the sewn items are manufactured in Dorset. The nature of the handmade element of the printing process ensures that every single print is truly unique.
Jenny has recently taken on a permanent retail space in Wareham, The Purbeck Artisan Yard, which is a shared retail space between local artists and craftspeople on Church Street, Wareham, Dorset. The Yard provides Wareham with a creative space and will be offering workshops in the coming months. Each artist involves takes it in turns to work on site and run the shop. All of Jenny's work can be found on the ground floor at the Yard and gives Jenny the opportunity to display one-off pieces and larger upholstered work on a permanent basis.
Having outsourced the printing of four of her designs: Lemons, Clams, Bass & Hook and Lobster Pot, Jenny can now offer her fabric by the metre for light upholstery and interiors. This linen is woven and printed in Lancashire, keeping all production and manufacture within the UK.
