Mann Singh and Jigisha Patel

Posted in Uncategorized by Kate Jones on April 30, 2008

Mann and Jigs came to the studio for a two week residency in 2006 as part of the British Council commission to make the prize for the winner of ‘India’s Creative Future’ ( Link , Creative Future Award )

They have both done good work in design, Jigs in textiles, including commissions for Habitat  and beautiful scarves made for the V&A shop, and Mann in designing for the Italian firm ‘driade’. Got an email today all about the Milan Fair and showing Mann’s new work in metal  ( Link to Manns Blogg ). For those who met them at the studio and who came to the lecture at Helmsley Arts Centre, I hope you find this interesting. Check our Mann’s blogg with his cool designs and the British Council Link for more info about the great project Jigisha and I were part of !

1st Day of the Year !

Posted in Uncategorized by Kate Jones on February 3, 2008

Opened on Feb 1st, as usual, but unusually to blizzards, followed by a 26 hr power cut !

Kids loved it, helicopters buzzing about all over the dale trying to find the downed line, candles everywhere, cooking on the wood stove, toasting on the fire…

I do like proper weather after the gery wet winters of a London childhood , but I hope thats the last of no power for this year ! Next time, just the snow , sledging followed by easily made hot chocolate and a hot bath …. mmm nice.

Made the Post again on Saturday. Bit of a nice surprise. All to do with CIN… The Burns Owen Partnership did some research for CIN, about creatives in North Yorks. Turns out combine us as a group across the board, and we economically make more for the county than farming, forestry and fisheries.

If you fancy a read of the full piece then the link is below.
