Juliette Hamilton Design

Juliette Hamilton originally trained at Manchester Metropolitan University in Textile Design, specialising in Weave. She went on the have a career designing embroidery for Marks and Spencers, concentrating on Ladieswear and Childrenswear.

When children came along, she started her own successful Soft Furnishing Business, aquiring clients through Fired Earth and making for customers around the North West. Juliette then got the gardening bug when she took on an allotment and decided to go to college to make sure she was doing it right! She received a commendation in RHS Level 2 in Horticulture and went on to get a Professional Diploma in garden design with distinction at Reaseheath College in Nantwich. Whilst at college, Juliette was fortunate enough to have her design chosen to be made at the Tatton Flower Show. So in 2008, she exhibited her ‘Children’s Butterfly Garden’ and was awarded a silver guilt medal.

During her study time at Reaseheath, they ran a willow weaving course and she became hooked! After studying at various workshops around the country she started selling at artisan markets and fairs and doing work for commissions. She is happy to discuss any requirements for sculptures, most things are possible. Juliette also teaches willow courses at Arley Hall near Northwich in Cheshire.
