Meet the artist with an unusually beautiful harvest














































Kyra Powell from Kynuka is putting her family farm in Herfordshire to a new use. Rather than the usual harvest, Kyra grows, picks, dries and presses flowers in the farm's cottage garden before turning them into orginal pieces of art. 

Originally trained as a cabinet maker, designing bespoke coffins ("something that’s always a good conversation starter... or stopper, dependant on the company,") Kyra found that being involved in the furniture manufacturing world didn’t sit comfortably for many reasons – from the amount of waste involved, the lack of traceability of materials, greenwashing, materialism and over-consumption of our planet’s virgin materials. This led her to set up a creative business creating botanical art, with as small an eco-footprint as possible. 

"It’s very important to me to ensure my products have a traceability throughout every process, that they do not have a detrimental effect on the environment and that they waste as little of our planet’s precious commodities as possible. I believe in a circular economy and therefore all my products are made from natural, biodegradable or recycled materials."















































































She creates her botanical pieces in a cabin she built herself from scrap. As she explains: "This way of reusing and reinventing materials is something I’ve done all my life. I think it stems from my traditional farming background; getting creative with what you’ve got rather than buying new."

It functions as the perfect studio for Kyra, providing not just daily inspiration but a space to think and create, away from the pressures of our constantly connected society. "The natural world is where I find solace," says Kyra. "That’s pretty much why I live in a tiny cabin in a field. In many ways I have somewhat rejected ‘conventional society’ for my own sanity."

Kyra sells her pieces on Folksy in her shop: https://folksy.com/shops/Kynuka

Folksy announces online spring market














































Folksy announces online spring market showcasing handmade products – 14-15 May 2022
 

The Folksy online market is coming back for a spring outing!

 

Our first virtual market started as an experiment in May 2020 during lockdown, to give artists and makers a new way to sell while in-person craft fairs were closed.

 

Returning this May, the Folksy Online Spring Market will showcase handmade wares from over 70 UK-based designers and makers. There will be handmade ceramics, artisan jewellery, original prints, unique homeware, illustrated stationery and more.

 

This is an opportunity to see our makers’ new collections, stock up on handmade gifts or treat yourself to something nice, without leaving the house. And once customers have shopped, they can tune into our online demonstrations to see craft in action and meet the talented craftspeople behind the pieces in our stallholder interviews.
 





























Visit the market at: https://tresstle.com/events/folksy-online-spring-market/

Virtual doors open 8am, Saturday 14th May
