Knits News

In the last few weeks, Dee is extremely proud to have launched her first book, Dee Hardwicke's Little Colour Knits.  Written with Georgie Park, who also runs the Studio Shop with her, this wonderful collection of 12 projects is the product of months of hard work and sees many of Dee's favourite watercolours translated from the sketchbook into charts to be worked into cosy projects for you and your home.


Signed copies of Dee Hardwicke's Little Colour Knits are available now from the Studio Shop, priced at £11.99.

To celebrate the launch of the book, Dee has created a limited number of beautiful hand-made, hand-painted, ceramic buttons.  Available in both blue and green, each butterfly button is presented on a tag so makes and wonderful, not to mention practical, gift!   


Finally, as an extra bonus for you, we are currently giving away the pattern for our Tall Boats Hot Water Bottle Cover with every purchase of our Tall Boats Buttons.  Selling at £6.50 a card, it's a great way to be inspired to start knitting for Christmas!

About Dee

I am an artist and designer with a rich and diverse portfolio inspired by my love of the British landscape and steeped in the artisan tradition of the Arts & Crafts movement. I trained in the fine arts, studying painting and sculpture before undertaking an apprenticeship with Quaker potters in the Welsh Marches. My business now encompasses everything from creating bespoke tiles and mosaics, to working with carefully selected companies to design beautiful chinaware, stationery, rugs and flooring that bring joy and a welcome splash of colour into everyday life. My passion for knitting and working with beautiful yarns has blossomed into a series of knitting books, bespoke knitted pieces and knitting design workshops. I’m endlessly inspired by the natural world surrounding my home between the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons. I’m never without my sketchbooks, and their pages quickly become filled with all of the enchanting details that catch my eye throughout the seasons, from the colours and patterns of a wild flower meadow on a summer’s day, to the ethereal quality of a butterfly’s wings, or the tranquillity of an ancient forest emerging from the dawn light. My sketchbooks become a celebration of nature as I fill their pages with drawings, watercolours, pressed leaves and flowers. I often find beauty and inspiration in the most unlikely places – perhaps the crack in a corner of a building where a delicate yet brightly coloured flower has taken root – and it’s often the tiniest of details that plants the seeds of a design. Based in a studio in the historic market town of Monmouth, I work with a variety of materials such as clay, paper and wool to develop my designs into beautiful products. I derive enormous pleasure from the way in which each material responds differently, stimulating and guiding the creative process.
