Our Brilliantly British Tenants Cabinet at MCDC

At Manchester Craft and Design Centre we have a designated cabinet to showcase all of our work that is made in the building. MCDC houses 18 studios, which are home to around 30 makers who make there work on site. Sue Barry is currently in charge of its curation and has chosen a British colour scheme.

Last week an twitter chat with of Ella of THIS IS PEWTER fame inspired me to make her portrait. Ella is renowned for her beautiful hair and splendid shoes, so this is what I came up with:
