We are pleased to be a part of the Bunting Collective project and we love showcasing the amazing makers involved! Our next maker is – Audrey Aymer!
The Bunting Collective is a community project aimed at bringing vibrancy and colour to the Petticoat Lane Market by hanging community made bunting, using the materials and fabrics from the local fabric shops in the market.
The Aldgate Connect BID, City of London Corporation, and the Borough of Tower Hamlets are proud to present a ‘Meet the Maker’ series. The series is showcasing the makers of the bunting, who are all members of the community with a passion and love for the area!
Meet the third maker of this series, Audrey Aymer!
See what Audrey had to say about the project below:
My name is Audrey and I live in Aldgate. I also host a stall once a week on Petticoat Lane as part of the Lady Lane Market. I enjoy knitting and crocheting, so I was excited when I was asked to help make the bunting as I have done so for the first time. I really enjoyed cutting the bunting shapes and sewing it together, as it was different to what I normally do.
The pandemic has had an impact on my work in Aldgate as I wasn’t able to run my stall, however I had the time to develop new ideas for the stock and content of my stall.
I think the Bunting Collective project will add value to Petticoat Lane Market as it will brighten up the lane, making it more attractive.
