After years as a business analyst working in the area of information technology, I left technology to pursue creative opportunities of a different genre.
Following a relocation to Antigonish NS, there was A, a coming together of an excess of encaustic medium from various projects; B, a general explorations in colouring textiles; and C, a strong interest in making bags.
Each bag starts with new unbleached cotton canvas which is then constructed, hand dyed and waxed. The leather handles are also hand cut and dressed or dyed.
Please know that I use beeswax for waxing and the bags may carry the beeswax scent for a while - i also work with natural leather so the leather scent may also be present. In both cases, the scent dissipates but I can’t offer a timeline.
I also sell through Etsy - Antigonish Bag on Etsy. I am typically behind on posting my bags.
