Sarah Jane Hemsley Upholstery

Sarah Jane is a professionally trained traditional upholsterer qualified through the Association of Master Upholsterers & Soft Furnishers. Upholstery was a complete career change about 10 years ago and she’s delighted to have discovered this wonderful sustainable craft. Sarah Jane has recently moved back to Bute following 25 years living and working in London. 

 

About 2 years ago Sarah Jane launched The Bulloch Collection - a range of scenic designs printed on textiles. The designs use original ink drawings of Bute by the late Lyn Bulloch, a much loved island resident and Sarah’s former school art teacher. 

The resulting textiles have been hand-made into beautiful home and gift accessories, with the wash bags made in Scotland using trimmings from the home accessories. 

Sarah also uses the fabric to reupholster restored chairs and sofas including an iconic 1950’s Ercol settee donated as first prize in the 2021 PS Waverley Grand Draw.

A little about my prints...

 

Waverley 

This dynamic design features a detailed ink drawing of the iconic paddlesteamer, Waverley, sailing in the firth of Clyde, the famous red funnels reflected in her wake.

Dunagoil & Shore Road

Two different island scenes creating a unique, contemporary Toile de Jouy in purples and pinks.

One image, Dunagoil, shows a cliff top vitrified fort overlooking a beach & the other a curving residential road running along the shoreline.

Sleeping Warrior

A foreground landscape in heightened colours of fields and hedgerows looking out to Arran, the neighbouring island, and the range of hills depicting the Sleeping Warrior.
