Simon Drew Bookmarks, Simon Drew Braces


Simon Drew, Dartmouth

We think it something of a happy coincidence that we are located in the same town as artist Simon Drew.

Simon has in fact been here a lot longer than us having opened his gallery in 1981. We arrived in Dartmouth in 2001 by which time we were already weaving his designs in silk for bookmarks and braces.
