Sarah Manton Butterfly



My name is Sarah Manton and I’m doing everything the other way round! I’ve worked in industry, textiles, design, marketing and administration for the last 20 years and I now have my own business trading in my life-long love, being creative and encouraging others to do the same! Born and bred in Melton Mowbray, I moved to Nottingham twenty years ago and am based in my shared studios at Curious? in the heart of the city’s Creative Quarter.

I’m in the fortunate position of having worked in a wide variety of media from paper and textiles to photography and digital design over the years. My passions of the moment are scherenschnitte (paper cutting – I regularly wield a scalpel), book binding, rock (music) household goods (intriguing!) and quilting – I’m a bit of butterfly and thrive on stimulating my mind with a variety of projects.
During my artistic journey, I’ve met so many wonderfully creative people (please see my links to my ‘Chums’). I’ve gathered artists, designer/makers, jewellery makers, illustrators, felters, seamstresses and sporting legends into my friendship circle along the way. As anyone who has met me will know, I could talk for England, but I also love to listen. Nothing excites me more than hearing about someone’s dreams and ideas and helping them to make them come true – my ideal would be to become the Secret Millionaire of Nottingham’s creative community – the fundamental flaws in my plan being that a) I am not a millionaire and b) I wouldn’t be able to keep it a secret!

I enjoy a challenge and look forward to hearing from anyone with an idea for a commission in paper, textiles or both! Please get in touch via email or telephone 07969 351658.
