About me

Hi, I’m Samantha, welcome to my digital home, sandscreative.co.uk.

My mum and grandmother taught me to sew from an early age. By the time I was a teen, I was making fashionable items from stuff like funky second hand curtains. That didn’t last too long before I moved onto other things having such a passion for art and creativity. 

I  am now an accomplished artist in many formats. 

As well as creating digital art and designing fabrics,  I’m also skilled at:

  • stained glass crafts,
  • crochet,
  • interior design and furniture decoration, upcycling,
  • sewing,
  • embroidery and quilt making
  • enamelling and jewellery design. 
  • costume design and production for theatre and film.

Most recently I have been working on a selection of eco friendly home accessories that help eliminate or limit the disposal of plastics into the environment. These products are made from natural resources including;

  • organic fabrics
  • vegan friendly fabrics
  • cotton or bamboo based fabrics.

Whilst a small amount of the products might include some plastic at the moment, (like the reusable sanitary protection pad poppers ), these products will still last longer than equivalent one-time use products. I am working towards replacing these small parts with more sustainable resources in future including using up the last of my poly-cotton lables, (which incidentally can be cut off and disposed of in general household plastic recycling,) and switching to cotton ones. ( I have a news post with further information about the products I use).

I’m proud to say that with regard to my fabric items, I operate on a ‘no fabric waste’ basis. Every little scrap of fabric is used in my products, and they are washable and reusable.

I also strive to ethically source the basic items for my handmade products from the UK, to help reduce environmental impact and I use recycled & recyclable packaging wherever possible.

When I don’t have my head behind a blow torch or sewing machine, you will probably find me in some wellies in the garden tending to the vegetables and shouting at snails.

Thanks for visiting. Hope you enjoy looking at my stuff.
