HG Profiles: Zoe Polatch, Zozos Design
I have two specialisms. Gift products and Artwork. Everything is designed and handmade using a playful mix of different mediums. Using my own designs, fabrics, card, wood, screen printing, sewing machine I make gift products and artwork spending every spare moment stitching, sketching and cutting away in a flurry of fabric, ribbon, buttons, inks, paper and card.
I truly love what I do and I hope it shows!
The range offers hand screen printed and hand cut, machine sewn, artwork, cards, and accessories which reflect my love of print, pattern, colour and fabric.
Local Craft Fairs & Exhibitions
I have attended a couple of craft fairs in Beckenham, Hilly Fields Summer Fair, Sydenham Home Park fair… Most recently I helped organise and run an exhibition with a new group of printmakers “Quaggy Printmakers’. This exhibition was held as part of the Sydenham Arts Festival 2014,
Most of my work is made to order, either personalised products or commissioned art works. I of course take any opportunity of spare time to create new designs and making up new products and as well as getting mucky and producing my own art work!
The most popular products are the Personalised aprons for both adults and children. A new product ‘Personalised Weekend Laundry Bag’ is proving popular as well as a steady flow of my screen printed and sewn greeting cards and handbound notebooks which also sell consistently throughout the year.
zozos.me.uk I have even stretched my skills to building my own website- I exhibit my latest work there and people can contact me with ideas and orders!
