Open Studio May 2011

The lovely artist Sam Toft is hosting an Open Studio & Puppet Show again this weekend, THE LAST CHANCE BEFORE CHRISTMAS! 28th & 29th May.

She has very kindly offered a space for me to display and sell my eco-friendly leather goods, and I’ll also have a corset there for you to peruse… here’s a sneak peek at my bits and bobs there {ssssh!!! don’t tell anyone!}

So PLEASE come on down, it’ll be great!

Brown Dog Studio, 12 Chapel Mews (off Waterloo Street) Hove, BN3 1AR

Check out Sam’s website for pictures and details of her brilliant puppet show {www.samtoft.co.uk}


P.S. Don’t forget you can look at more photos of my pieces in my Etsy shop (Click the link at the top right corner of my homepage to be taken there)


Organic Cotton Corset

Grey & White Pinstriped Organic Cotton Corset, lined with Organic Cotton. Spiral Steel Boned. This corset is made in the traditional late Victorian style, with modern materials.

I wish I had a wooden bust to display this corset on… I’m working towards one, as the photo below right doesn’t really do it justice. There are more photos on my Facebook page. I hope you like it…


Do you have any ideas or suggestions that you’d like to see? I can make you a corset to your exact measurements in any style, colour & fabric you’d like. See my Etsy shop for more details or comment here.

Lewes Craft Fair

So, I’ve finished my organic cotton corset, and it looks mighty fine (IF I may say so myself!) Pictures to follow, but what I really want to share with you is that I’ll be at the Bits and Bobbins Craft Fair in Lewes, East Sussex on Saturday 16th April, 10-4 at the All-Saints Centre, Friars Walk.


I’m very excited, and it’s going to be packed with GORGEOUS things and lovely people. Come on down!!!

I’ll be selling my eco-friendly accessories & will have a corset or two on display, so if you like what you see I can be commissioned to make a made-to-measure one just for you, in the colour & fabric of your choice…

Welcome to my new blog

Hi there, masquerading as OakAppleDesigns on Etsy, I’m Harriet Rich and will bring you photos of work in progress, completed pieces and perhaps some words of relative wisdom if you’re lucky!

I’m aiming to make a completed steel boned hourglass corset by 25th March, and will keep you updated!

This is all a bit overwhelming..!
