    Work Experience at Poppy Treffry!

    Over the past two weeks I have been lucky enough to complete a work experience placement with Poppy and the team at Poppy Treffry! I am a huge fan of their designs, and have used them for inspiration many times over the years of studying Textiles. I was therefore super excited to get started, and I sure haven't been disappointed! I have spent most of my time at the studio in Penzance. It has been fascinating to be able to see all of the behind the scenes of the studio and business, and see all of the amazing work that team Treffry do! Everyone has been ever so friendly and welcoming, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. It has also been lovely to be able to explore the area of Penzance, as I have never visited before! It's such an idyllic place, especially for photographs! DSC00359 The most exciting part of my experience was being able to use the traditional Singer sewing machines for the very first time, as I have always wanted to use one! The problem is that now I have used one, I would really love to have one of my own! I have really enjoyed each of my sewing roles, helping Liz to make the bags in the 'bag factory'. It's really exciting to be able to make a part of something that is going to be sold at Poppy Treffry! singer2 I have also been lucky enough to spend a couple of days at the Poppy Treffry shop in St Ives. I have always wanted to visit Poppy's shop, and so was really excited to finally see it in person! The shop is simply gorgeous, and is set in such an idyllic location. As Poppy has just this week began refurbishments in the shop, I have been very much involved in clearing all of the stock and fixtures from the shop, and helping begin the re-fit! This has involved lots and lots of painting! It has been really interesting to watch the shop slowly transform, and I have really enjoyed doing something completely different. st-ives St Ives has such stunning scenery, I couldn't resist exploring a little and taking some more snaps along the way.. st-ives-beach-collage I have had the opportunity to experience and get involved in so many different roles of the business, and I have learnt so much along the way. It has been such an amazing learning experience for me, and is extremely valuable to my future in textiles. I'm feeling very inspired by my time here, and am looking forward to getting back to University in Cardiff and practising all that I have learnt. I am very thankful to all of the team at Poppy Treffry for welcoming me into their little world, and am extremely grateful for having the opportunity! It's such a lovely place to work, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a love for textiles! Thanks for having me! Kelly x  

    Experiencing Poppy Treffry!

    Over the past two weeks I have completed some work experience at the one and only Poppy Treffry! It's such a good learning experience and i've had lots of fun seeing behind the scenes of the business and studio. Everyone was extremely welcoming and lovely and I have learnt alot. This is such a big thing towards my future and I would strongly reccomend any student wondering about doing a work experience somewhere during or after college/university as it is really helpful and worth it :) During my time i took some photographs which i will be uplaoding with a more in depth post on my own blog when i get home back up north next week so keep your eyes peeled!
