Month In The Life: Kate Marsden from Made By Mrs M

Today in the Month In The Life Series we find out what creative fun Textile Artist Kate Marsden from Made By Mrs M has been up to in August

Kate is a textile designer and fibre artist who uses her paintings and sketches to create patterns which she translates into designs for ceramics, cross stitch and all sorts of different things. Her design work has a wonderfully mid century modern feel and is packed full of interesting geometrics, amazing colour and iconic prints based on the sights of various UK cities.

Find out more about Kate on the Made By Mrs M website, and keep  in touch via twitter and  facebook

Over to you Kate, tell us how August went for you:

“Highlights for August included a month long exhibition of my knitted and crochet diaries at The Brook in Wallington, the arrival of my new fabric designs (and two little commissions – one involving my new South Bank fabric). I also had my birthday at the beginning of the month (with a lovely trip to Whitstable) and spent the bank holiday weekend having a brilliant time at the Reading Festival”


August 1st : Afternoon visit to The Brook to check out my exhibition and meet with Helen Segal (the other artist who is exhibiting this month)

August 3rd: Working on a little wedding card commission

August 11th: Lowery at Tate Britain

August 14th: Spent the evening make new brooches – you can buy these and more in my newly opened Etsy store

August 17th: Took my Mum into Calladoodles to see my work in store. Discovered I’ve sold some more!

August 19th: Sewing this morning! Brand new Park Hill applique cushion

August 23rd: Reading Festival!

August 27th: Made a little commissioned piece today

August 31st: Packing up Christmas Cards ready for September fairs
