We're all Cuckoo here
This year’s theme for the Beautiful Borders was DOWN YOUR WAY. Find out more about Shona Lockheart’s Beautiful Border below. This border was awarded Best Beautiful Border.
Designed by: Shona Lockheart
This border was inspired by an old farm in Colchester, which has been converted into studios for artists in which Shona took residency after she graduated.
The beauty of this location lies in the repurposed buildings, but the essence of the original still being present. Remnants of its previous life are all around the farm, with the ever-encroaching nature slowly claiming it. Shona will recreate this feeling in her border, with reference to the previous use of design, while harmonising with the needs of functionality now.
