Layla creates sculptures from birch, bracken and flowers all year round, but in early December she has her foot to the floor fulfilling orders for Christmas wreaths. I followed Layla for a day as she foraged for materials before returning home to work.
Like many others, we jumped on the breadmaking bandwagon over lockdown. I'm addicted to all things sourdough, but Clare has been baking some amazing yeasted loaves. A super-seeded one from Anna Jones has become a firm favourite. So much so, I made a wee film of my girls baking it.
Filmed at home in the first lockdown of 2020
A friend suggested we get one of those instant boil taps for our new place, but I love the slow rituals surrounding coffee and tea. Those moments in between everything else in the day are to be treasured—it’s all about the pause - so I made a quick film about my coffee routine.
