Taunton-based 2008 Middlesex University graduate Emma set up Olive Rose in 2015. The name is inspired by her daughters’ middle names.
She has a self-confessed obsession with the manipulation of a line. Using a Victorian lace craft called “Tatting”, she is able to manipulate a single line of thread into a complex structure.
This intricate textiles process involves knotting threads to form loops and lines. She stays true to the original technique, yet her designs have a contemporary feel.
Each design grows and develops through making - the threads themselves and colour are her inspiration.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
