A while back Marna set up a hashtag #studiosnippet inviting embroiderers, textile enthusiasts, designers, makers and craft lovers across Instagram to join in and share a snippet of life inside their studio. And boy, you Instagram addicts didn’t disappoint!
Instagram is the home of crafty folk, from embroiderers to textile peeps, illustrators to graphic designers; it’s the go-to place for inspiration and networking with creatives. We have now reached the age of the hashtag, instantly connecting us with like-minded hashtaggers across the globe! Networking through social media platforms has never been so easy. So what better way to join in the fun than creating a hashtag that shares the creative mess of maker’s studios! The best part of making, whether you’re up to your elbows in paint, or proud of your giant fabric stash and embroidery thread collection.
I have to say that visiting Marna’s studio is a real treat, not only filled with inspiring collection, jars of buttons, reels upon reels of ribbons and of course a glorious stash of Liberty fabric for good measure! Visiting the Little A Designs studio is serene, peaceful, creative nook it’s difficult not to feel inspired stepping into her studio space! There’s no staged insta shots, Marna’s studio is as scrumptious as it looks in her photos!
The #studiosnippet hashtag has been used dozens upon dozens of times across Instagram by you lovely lot, it’s great to see how you are inspired, what makes you tick and a snippet into your creative processes! Here is a quick glimpse of just a few #studionippets!
