The Earthly Paradise

I am afraid this post is going to take the form of a shameless plug - apologies!

I am currently co-directing a production of 'The Earthly Paradise' by Peter Whelan at South London Theatre. It is about the tangled relationships between William Morris, Jane Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti and runs from 18th - 22nd October. If anyone happens to be in or nearby West Norwood (SE London) and fancies a trip to the theatre for a funny and moving window into the world of these three well-known figures of the pre-Raphaelite movement then it would be lovely to see you there.

On a more crafty note, as well as directing I have also been helping out with costumes as Janey Morris wore rather specific clothing of the type that you don't usually find hanging about a wardrobe department. My skills as a dressmaker are all self-taught and essentially limited but I have had a lot of fun interpreting the Laughing Moon Day Dress pattern (bought from Habitthat). Definitely not the easiest thing I have ever had to make but I am rather pleased with the result which I hope is suitably Pre-Raphaelite:

Plug over!!
