Lemon Pepper Studio
Lemon Pepper Studio is a place to discover the art of Hand Embroidery. Created by artist Pippa Haynes, the Studio is inspired by nature and all the wonders it has to offer. After working for a number of years in editorial and retail set design Pippa took up embroidery and from there developed an embroidery practice that celebrates the organic shapes, colours and textures of Nature, preserving 360 degree and 180 degree micro-habitats through the medium of thread. She now sells Jewellery, Kits, Artwork and Embroidery Tools that aim to inspire people to enjoy the magic of hand embroidery.

Pip White was born and brought up in Salisbury. It has only been recently that her discovery of needle felting has allowed her to explore her talent in a very unique way. Her use of fibre forms an illusion of watercolour or pastels and allows her to create landscapes and coastal scenes mainly from the south west of England. The pictures are created by repeatedly stabbing wool, yak or silk fibres into a backing felt using a barbed felting needle, producing tactile and subtle impressions of natural landscapes.
