Pickled Tees

Lisa Pickles (working alias Pickled Tees) is so fresh off the screen-printing press that she’s only been around September of this year. I discovered her work perusing my favourite craft/maker blog Reetsweet, who organise regular craft fairs in Leeds and Sheffield showcasing all the finest fashionable and quirky handmade crafts the local area has to offer. Pickled Tees is one of Reetsweet’s latest sellers, and like Reetsweet, I am head-over-heels for her unusual, beautifully intricate (and dare I say a little bizarre) designs.

Hand-drawn with ink and nib, Lisa then screen prints her drawings onto soft cotton tees using environmentally friendly water-based inks. Seemingly inspired by myths, legends, dreams and the natural world, her designs are the definition of weird and wonderful; butterflies, apes, squids, bugs, birds and bears wearing braces are all blurred together in outstanding detail to create garments that are both utterly awesome and completely unique.

Pickled Tees is currently in the process of setting up her website, but in the meantime you can check out her Facebook for all the latest goings on.

About Georgie Beardmore

I’m Georgie, a Creative Writing masters student at the University of Sheffield. As might be expected from someone who studies creative writing, I love writing (I write a lot -seriously, a lot), and write a variety of fiction and non-fiction things for various online and printed publications. As well as fiction, I most enjoy writing about music, the arts and student living, but I've also written things about living abroad, travel and local projects and events, as well as waffling about whatever takes my fancy on my blog. I am also heavily involved in student radio; I've been part of Forge Radio (the University of Sheffield's student radio station) for nearly four years now, helping run the station over the last two first as Secretary and then as Assistant Station Manager. Every week I present my own weekly specialist folk music show 'What The Folk?' (the show is as pun-filled as its name would suggest), on which I aim to promote new and exciting folk musicians from across the UK, and this year I've also been a part of organising some gigs as part of 'Forge Presents...', Forge Radio's series of live music events. I'm incredibly passionate about both music and the arts, and so am really excited to be part of the Born In Britain campaign and the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent both Sheffield and the UK has to offer.
