Snowdrops and Sentiments..
.. was established by myself, Mags Donnan, in 2013 following many years of recreational doodling. My background is in Occupational Therapy and I trained back in the day when traditional arts and crafts were taught for their therapeutic benefits.
I love flowers .. the first flower I put to card was a snowdrop and I am a bit sentimental around quotations .. hence the name. Encouraged by the success of my cards in several local shops and galleries, I set up a studio in my favourite room .. overlooking the beautiful shores and waters of Strangford Lough. I progressed onto ceramic flowers with the ultimate excitement in 2016 of owning my own kiln .. very old but beautifully efficient.
I was invited to join the locally renowned North Down Craft Collective as a resident maker in the same year. I love the bustle and camaraderie at this monthly market www.northdowncraftcollective.com. You will find my full range here.
The perfect day for me is a cold clear winter morning .. so I can light a fire and cosy down with my designs, lots of clay, a cup of Nambarrie tea and my pup Toby at my feet.
