Business owner and Creative Director of Edie-Mae’s, Claire Palmer has always had a passion for redesigning and repurposing. She studied Interior Design in the 1990’s and began her creative reuse journey by re-designing pieces for her own home and for her friends and family. Her reputation for creating items of great charm quickly grew and she eventually transferred her business from home Edie-Mae’s, where she displays her re-designed furniture alongside other Dorset-based artists, designers and makers.
Claire now provides a furniture re-upholstery and refinishing service, and is a stockist for Artisan Enhancements products, Frenchic Paint and Sweet Pickins Milk Paint. Claire also hosts furniture re-design workshops at beginner level through to advanced, as well as in a variety of upcycling decorative techniques including crackle glaze, using scumble glazes, metallic leaf and pearl plaster.
