Pull and Pin
From the shop owner
I am a British Asian slow artist and artist educator. I have developed my career working on a wide range of art education projects for museums, galleries, schools and many other establishments for over 25 years.
I have a keen interest in promoting the arts and crafts to a wider audience and as a tool for creative expression and learning. The aim is to also empower and inspire individuals in their own creative process.
Through my practice and workshops, I take inspiration from my desire to live a slower pace in our lives and the importance of creative self care for our wellbeing.
Why we love
Pull and Pin
I love that Pull and Pin is more than a shop - it's a way of life! Saj's slow stitched work makes me feel calmer just by looking at it. Her beautiful work includes slow stitched wall art and brooches, gorgeous macrame necklaces and mindful pen on paper art. Her designs are the antitheses to today's fast consumer culture. I really love this visual celebration of a slower pace.
And not being one to keep the slow art revolution to herself, Saj now offers a gorgeous array of calming workshops - the perfect way to let your mind slow down. With workshops on many practices including weaving, mandala artworks and macrame, there's something to suit everyone. These make such a great gift for someone that needs to slow down and focus a little energy on themselves.
I also love her family workshops, which include an adult and child in the price - a really great way to connect with those brilliant small people in our lives.
And for those that can't make it to a workshop, Saj also offers macrame kits that you can make at home.
