Lovingly Made By… offers unique, handmade and reloved items for you and your home using natural materials and simple design. Each item is lovingly handmade to make a unique gift or decorative piece for your home. We sell through independent retailers within Dundee and Angus and online through our Etsy shop. By attending local events we also have contact with our customers and get to share, face to face, our passion for creating Lovingly Made By’s products.
In 2016, Alison Knight started Lovingly Made By… from a passion for sewing and creating hand made items. Alison is influenced by her mother’s work as a potter and uses simple ceramic shapes to enhance her products. Some of the ceramic products are made by Alison's mum and sold by Lovingly Made By...
We offer workshops in modern crafts and upcycling for people with creative ideas but limited time to learn new skills. With busy lives it is often hard to complete or even start a creative project and so our workshops allow you to go away with the skills and a finished piece to be proud of. At Lovingly Made By… we firmly believe that being creative, even in a small way, is ‘good for the soul’.
