The mission to relocate my work space from home to somewhere else came when I realised I had spread myself across 3 rooms which seemed a tad disorganised!
I looked at many potential studio places. Some rural, some city based, some shared but the cost of moving in was almost the same as a small retail unit.
It was an easy decision to make, why pay the same for somewhere that won’t actually generate sales or get the word out about WAR (We Are Rushworth)?
I finally found a small and “bijoux” shop in Berwick Upon Tweed, a lovely historic walled town only 15 miles from my home, it’s on a cute cobbled street, nestled amongst some other independent shops, cafes and the theatre.
The support and comments from customers has been overwhelming, my doubts as to whether this was a good idea are fast evaporating.
I love it now I’m here.
Project WAR has been a success to date. It’s a collection of WAR knitwear and accessories together with designs and products from other independent designers and makers.
We appreciate effort….who doesn’t?
Trying and doing…. always.
Come and see us, we are off the beaten track on 36 West Street, Berwick Upon Tweed, TD15 1AS:
