About the speaker:

Originally from Scotland, Donna Wilson set up her company in 2003 after making odd knitted creatures for her final show at the Royal College of Art. The creatures sold out and since then she has built her business designing and making a collection of curious cushions, luxurious lambswool blankets, and variety of products for the home, working frequently with famous brand SCP.

Donna uses UK based manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible, doing her bit to keep craftsmanship alive.
