House of Quinn was invited to take part in The New Craftsmen Summer Show. Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, which is taking place at the Mayfair Showroom from the 21st July to the 9th August. 

It is open to everyone and showcases a selection of 17 makers across many different mediums. 

The Launch of the show was an amazing event, with cocktails supplied by Our London and served in the conservatory. Everyone that attended were in high spirita and looked incredible. I had the opportunity to speak to some of the other makers at the show, talking about there amazing work and inspuration. Local Maker Tom of Holland also based in Brighton displayed his work, looking at mending old items and giving them a new life. 

For the show I created a series of six cushions, inspired by the Cornish landscape and stone circles. Entitled 'Trigva' meaning abode or home in Cornish. Each cushion is hand quilted and appliquéd with a hand binding and hand painted textiles.

Inspired by Cornish landscapes, these cushions have been created using traditional quilting techniques with renewed or hand-painted textiles sourced from British and European textiles mills. House of Quinn, based in Sussex, prides itself on small-batch manufacture and sustainable approaches to design and making.
