I’m Jen, of All-Agog, and I am passionate about textiles and upcycling.
I repurpose plastic taster glasses that are destined for the rubbish bin and turn them into mini lampshades on a string of fairy lights. My glasses are donated from other local businesses including apple juice makers, wineries and cider makers who would prefer their plastic to stay out of landfill. I also make embellished lavender-filled bunting and use leftover fabric to make hair accessories and flower brooches – waste not, want not!
If you’re wondering where the name comes from, it packs a triple whammy – as it is a synonym of my surname (Keen), it means 'in high spirits', and also refers to my hailing from North Wales – and so am all 'a Gog' – a colloquialism derived from the Welsh ‘Gogledd’, meaning North.
I do custom lights to order too, and can even use your own special fabric, so please contact me if you would like a particular colour combination, length or fabric.
