Sara Piper Heap Jewellery
When I'm not designing new SheapKnits my other 'proper' job is being a jeweller and metalsmith.
Have a look at my jewellery website to see examples of what I design, make and teach.
SheapKnits Kits contain 100% pure British Wool. We are committed to supporting the British wool industry and one of our chosen suppliers is Blacker Yarns as their eco-credentials and support for local farmers are an inspiration.
West Yorkshire Spinners
Like us West Yorkshire spinners are extremely proud of their British heritage and are one of our chosen suppliers of British Wool. They firmly believe that knowing where their raw material comes from guarantees the consistency and high quality of their yarn.
A great three day festival that includes talks, demonstations, workshops and a curated marketplace that showcases the best of contemporary and innovative producers and makers. These include SheapKnits I'm happy to say.
Borderland Visual Arts
In my other life as a jeweller and metal basher I'm a member of Borderland Visual Arts - a group of artists working in and around Oswestry. Click on the link for details of the Open Studios event we hold in June when you could actually visit me in person.
Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft
In my capacity of (ahem) highly skilled metalsmith and jeweller I'm a member of the Shropshire Guild of Contempory Craft. Click on the logo to see some of the exquisite work of our members and details of shows and exhibitions.
