Percy House Gallery Keeping Warm


The winter is now in full swing and the cold has been even sharper than Lapland on some days, so keeping warm is one of my priorities!


TAKE 6 ARTISTS


Take 6 artists and put them and their work in a willow weaver's beautiful workshop and magic happens... again!


We want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came to our Take Six event recently. We had record numbers of people and a fantastic time! It is such a joy to show our work and talk to everyone who has an interest in the handmade, we love sharing ways to get you creative too. We raised over £260 to give to West Cumbria Carers which is wonderful, we sold work, received lots of lovely compliments and we ALL had a great time! How does it get any better than that? We look forward to seeing you next year... and with our new mystery guest maker!

Practical layering is not just a designer or journalist creation, it’s a technique for keeping warm and bringing out your favourite knitwear, jackets and coats all at once. So, it makes you look heavier but at this time of year, don’t you prefer to be warm – or is that just me? Winter holidays tend to add the extra pounds anyway. It is still another month before we can expect a rise in temperature. In order to get excited about fashion I just think cosiness. This year, I have been going for double down, jackets and hoodies/waistcoats under coats or even on the coldest days TWO coats. Oversized coats work over ‘down’ vests, or lightweight jackets - like denim and wool to give another level of warmth. Denim jackets work well under tartan or duffel coats.


There are still examples of lovely faux fur coats, bright pink, green, tweed and tartan, all of which present bargains as they will be reappearing next year winter 2018 in a similar guise. Military coats, capes and ponchos work well when worn over other lightweight jackets. Before spring arrives properly, my favourite idea for a sensible purchase is


cardigan/coat which is a great way of


adding an extra layer over a waistcoat or under a long overcoat. The most excellent examples, still in the sales, are the long flowing cashmere or boiled wool varieties. These items are perfect transitional garments to go between seasons and there are still good investments around. It is a great way of getting a basic and useful staple which works across the warmer seasons as a proper coat and can still be handy for layering under trench coats in our cooler wetter days of spring and autumn.


This knitted coat style works well over a dress to make it less formal looking and is ideal over trousers to give extra warmth at work, whilst adding a bit of drama.
