Inspiration Moodboard: The Orange Grove
Can you imagine the delicious scent of these gorgeous oranges?
This month, we’re taking inspiration from a glorious Orange Grove (we’ll be announcing the actual kit soon!), and letting our creative imaginations run wild with the colours, smells and golden sunshine this theme evokes.
Here’s some creative prompts to get you started…
- Imagine the smell of a beautiful, fresh, juicy orange. Does it remind you of another place or time? How would you describe it to someone who’s never tried one before, what words does it conjure up for you? Could you write a haiku about it?
- The bright, unabashed colour of oranges is pretty distinctive. Look at the colours and tones in the moodboard – how you could use this happy colour in your next creative project?
- It’s February as we write this, so it’s pretty chilly out in the UK and the images in our moodboard are making us think of summer holidays! Where does it remind you of? Somewhere you’ve been, or read of in a book? What does it look like? Could you create a collage of it from your own photos or magazines, then add details with paints, pencils or embroidery?
You can download the moodboard (for personal use) here: The Orange Grove Moodboard.

Each month, we design a limited edition craft kit for you. It could be macrame, ceramics, book-binding – or something completely different!
Beautifully packaged, your box will arrive full of inspiration and all the materials, tools and instructions to make a complete project.
For this month’s kit, we’re exploring one our favourite macrame knots of all – the gathering knot!
You’ll be building up gathering knots to form a placemat that would look gorgeous on a dining table or side table. It’s a mindfully repetitive process that you’ll find a relaxing rhythm to as you knot the time away without even noticing.
