Michelle Harvey is the prolific and inspiring maker behind Crayon Chick woven and crochet homewares and accessories. I met Michelle years ago when we both had market stalls and I’ve since watched her refine and evolve her products, and ultimately create her own niche in a very competitive marketplace.
Michelle’s tag line is “old crafts, new tricks”, an appropriate adage for her unique woven rope bowls in a gorgeous on-trend palette, knotted neckpieces, and crochet baskets. With a background in fine arts, and a childhood with a crafty mum, a handy dad with an awesome shed, and girl guides, it’s no wonder Michelle continues to find ways to use what’s at hand, to recycle, to re-claim and re-use.
I recently had the pleasure of styling and shooting Crayon Chick‘s current range of Weave Bowls. The bowls come in two sizes in lovely soft colours as well as a couple of shades of grey, and natural rope.
