Terry Macey and Angelika Elsebach design and make unique, beautiful clothes for women in their Studio Workshop a stunning, recently converted Methodist Chapel in the heart of in the ancient town of Glastonbury.
They met over 24 years ago amalgamating their skills in art and design, a passion for fabrics and a desire to create clothes with an ethos for craft rather than mass production. Their clothes are casual but stylish with a quality of freedom and individuality not dominated by fashionable trends.
Attention to detail and finish of each garment is a trade mark, but most important of all they design for women of every age, shape and size and provide personal fittings and bespoke outfits when required, either in their Chapel Studio or at the various exhibitions they take part in throughout the year.
They have both travelled extensively seeking good sources of natural fabrics and after years of research choose the quality of materials closer to home including Irish linen, English wools, Donegal and Scottish tweeds. Their collections always includes some special one off pieces, silks and velvet.
The range of designs is extensive and while new pieces are created each year many of the designs have become iconic classics and are still as popular as when they were first created.
Terry and Angelika exhibit at a selection of designer maker exhibitions including, The Contemporary Craft Festival at Bovey Tracey with The Devon Guild of Crafts men; Made London at One Marylebone, one of the top selling events for makers in Europe; Made Brighton’s design and craft fair and Selvedge Magazine fairs in Chelsea Town Hall and Bath.
For the first time this year they will be exhibiting at the Sailsbury Craft and Heritage Fair and Shine Contemporary Design and Craft Fair in Trelissick Gardens, Cornwall.
Over the years they have also helped to curate various shows, such as the Chelsea Craft Quarter in Chelsea town hall more recently Not So Fast at The Octagon in Bath with a group of prestigious textile designers. They also regularly exhibit in galleries such as 54 The Gallery in Mayfair , Craft Central in London and the Yew Tree Gallery in Cornwall.
Various shops and galleries in London, Bath, Devon, Scotland and France represent their collections and they have individual clients all over the world.
Appointments at the Chapel Studio are very welcome throughout the year.
