Making Winter: A Creative Guide for Surviving the Winter Months

We're so incredibly honoured that Emma Mitchell chose to launch her first book at Loop. We can vouch that the recipes are all yummy! It's really very special and makes the most perfect treat for yourself or a gift for a loved one.

Please note that Emma will also be teaching a wonderful workshop at Loop this Winter to make the Hedgerow Handwarmers.

From delicate silver jewellery, paper-craft decorations and crocheted mittens, to foraged infusions, delicious recipes and nature diaries, Making Winter is filled with projects designed to fend off dreariness in the winter months. 

Step-by-step instructions and beautiful photographs, shot at Emma's cottage in the Fens, take you through each project, so that even beginners can enjoy the mood-boosting benefits of a craft-filled winter and snuggle down in their own cosy paradise.
Making Winter, a creative survival guide for the colder months is Emma's first book and each of the projects and recipes is designed to boost mood on dreary days. Emma is passionate about the potential of both craft and contact with nature for combatting depression.

Emma Mitchell is a designer-maker, naturalist and illustrator who has written for the Guardian, Mollie Makes and Standard Issue magazine. In 2011 she began a project on her blog silverpebble, encouraging readers to use creative, cosy and cake-based ways to prevent winter from becoming three months of incessant greyness. In the winter of 2015/16 so many people joined in with the project that it trended on Twitter several times.

Emma lives on the edge of the Fens in Eastern England with her husband, two daughters and two guinea pigs. She records her daily nature finds with photographs and illustrations on her Instagram (@silverpebble2) and Twitter (@silverpebble). Emma invented the Comic Relief Crafternoon project which has raised significant amounts for brilliant causes through the UK's love of craft. Her yarn stash is enormous, she owns a sizeable collection of fossilised twigs and she is very fond of weasels.
