TABLE TOP MUSEUM

I'll be participating in @artworkersguild Table Top Museum, an exhibition of collectors showing their collections. I'll be showing A Plethora of Passementerie, samples from my archive stretching back over the last 30 years and beyond.

Amongst which will be several bullion samples, including the Sultan of Brunei's throne room (first passementerie I ever wove) and a banner weight, woven late 90s, which was used on the banners exchanged by football teams at the beginning of a match. I gave the Spurs and Arsenal ones away. The one I have left is red and gold so wasn't sure which team it was for (possibly Man U, as same colours as logo?)

And you thought passementerie was only for cushions!

So, if you have a penchant for the peculiar, esoteric and eccentric, this is the event for you.

There will also be the chance to have a nosy around the Guild's beautiful building with a pre-booked tour as part of Open House Festival @opencitylondon

Sunday 18th September, 11am-5pm.

STATE OF PLAY

As lockdown starts to ease and the world opens up little by little, Jessica Light would like to say a huge thank you to all our clients, customers, press, and friends who have championed and supported us during the past twelve months. You have helped keep this small business going through some tough times.

Moving forward the workshop is now functioning pretty much on a full-time basis, but due to limited access during lockdown and a very heavy workload our lead-times still remain longer than usual.

The state of play at the moment is any orders [with the exception of our online shop] that are received from the 12th April 2021 will not go into production until 24th May 2021. I know this sounds a life-time away, but as all our products are hand-made and hand-woven to order using labour intensive techniques, it is not possible and there aren't enough hours in the day to facilitate new orders until then.

Thank you for your patience at this time. Normal service will be resumed as soon as humanly possible.
